The Saskatchewan Centre for Patient-Oriented Research’s Patient & Researcher Connection Site is a pilot project intended to link patients, families and communities with current patient-oriented research projects in Saskatchewan.
Here, researchers can post engagement opportunities when looking for Patient Partners to collaborate with on their projects. Patients can view available research opportunities as well as sign up for a weekly newsletter summarizing new opportunities.
"Patient" is an overarching term which includes individuals with personal experience of a health issue as well as informal caregivers, including family and friends. It may also include community/public representatives, individuals from patient organizations, and others who have experience with illness.
