POR Competencies (for all stakeholders)

POR Competencies

(the "POR Pathways Project")

The Patient-Oriented Research (POR) Pathways project, which is nearing completion, has identified POR competencies (those are knowledge, skills, attitudes and attributes). These have been explored by stakeholder group (as defined by CIHR -- patients, researchers, health care providers and health system decision-makers) through a scoping review of the peer-reviewed literature and grey literature. These competencies were reviewed by a group of local and international expert advisors from all stakeholder groups. Once the competencies are finalized, the competencies will be aligned with existing training and resources. This self-assessment tool will allow an individual to assess which competencies they possess and to find links to training and resources to acquire competencies that need development. (Projected completion date: Spring 2019)
