Hospital Practices and Research (HPR) is a peer-reviewed international academic journal published quarterly by the Clinical Research and Development Unit of Baqiyatallah Hospital. The journal publishes high-impact studies related to key aspects of hospital research. HPR provides a forum for hospital specialists to debate on contemporary challenges of hospital research and healthcare services delivery and to seek ideas and solutions to achieve higher performance and effectiveness in healthcare settings. Our primary aim is to facilitate the exchange of ideas, hypotheses, techniques, and information among all physicians, staff, and students. The journal's main focus is placed on efficacy in improving clinically relevant outcomes such as mortality, morbidity, quality of life, function, and costs.
