PATIENT PARTNER OPPORTUNITIES
A Patient Partner is a person who has had a recent experience being a patient (or a family member, friend, or caregiver of a patient) who helps improve services based on patient and family identified needs. Patient Partners partner with staff and research teams to make improvements to help shape health care and health research. Patient Partners become partners in the committee or research project and can be actively engaged in governance, priority setting, developing research questions, and even performing certain parts of the research itself. This type of participation helps to ensure that our work and research being conducted is relevant and valuable to the patients that it affects. Patient partners can also collaborate to summarize or share the results with target audiences (especially other patients) and with policy makers or other decision makers who may apply the results in a health or community setting.
