About this Event

How the Panel Works

In this session, patient and public partner panelists will share their perspectives on practical considerations for the use of technology and social media in practicing meaningful, inclusive and safe online patient and public engagement. The panelist presentations will be followed by a Q&A and discussion period. Attendees are welcome to submit questions ahead of time to CHIPartners@umanitoba.ca, or during the webinar via the chatbox.

About the Panel

By the end of the session, attendees should be able to:

  • Describe challenges in using technology to connect;
  • Describe how technology impacts the processes of building and maintaining relationships;
  • Identify methods to make the most of the tools available for online engagement.

Panelists include patient and public partners who are members of the Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI)'s Patient and Public Engagement Collaborative Partnership. The panel will be moderated by CHI’s Patient and Public Engagement Team.

Please join us for an interactive discussion on how to work with patient and public partners to ensure online engagement is as inclusive as possible.
