McMaster Health Forum | Masterclass

 

The Forum’s masterclass is designed to prepare future champions for the conduct and use of patient-oriented research in Ontario’s health system and future mentors to others becoming involved in the conduct and use of patient-oriented research.

Defining patient-oriented research

“Patient-oriented research refers to a continuum of research that engages patients as partners, focuses on patient-identified priorities and improves patient outcomes. This research, conducted by multidisciplinary teams in partnership with relevant stakeholders, aims to apply the knowledge generated to improve healthcare systems and practices.”
