“Tools for Patient-Oriented Research” Pre-conference Workshop on October 3, 2018
Given the increasing impetus for patient-oriented research, and the increasing number of requests from health care researchers for resources to support patient engagement on research teams, the BC SUPPORT Unit is offering a half day in-person workshop.
What is the purpose of the workshop? To provide researchers with an opportunity to explore a framework to guide, and an array of resources to support, engaging patients on research teams.
Who is the workshop appropriate for? Healthcare researchers and trainees interested in building awareness of tools to support engaging patients as members of the research team.
When is the workshop? Wednesday, October 3, 2018
Where will the workshop be hosted? #PPF18 hotel: Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle Downtown (1128 West Hastings Street). This workshop is being held in Vancouver but is intended as a pilot for potential distribution as an in-person event throughout BC and potentially for delivery in a virtual format.
What is the format of the workshop? This half-day in-person workshop will include both didactic and interactive components. Participants will require a laptop, tablet or other electronic device to enable real-time interaction with resources accessed via the internet.
What are the objectives of the workshop?
- To expose researchers and trainees to helpful tools for different phases of the research cycle, that may be used for designing and undertaking a research study which includes patient partners on the team.
- To provide an opportunity for researchers/trainees to network enabling potential collaboration on shared initiatives.
- To share information, and enable discussion, regarding the services and resources available from the BC SUPPORT Unit to assist teams in developing grant applications and undertaking projects which are in alignment with the definition of patient-oriented research.
Save the date! Workshop details and registration for this workshop will be circulated in the summertime.
