The 2016 research symposium of the MUHC-ISAI will introduce internationally-acclaimed initiatives that are narrowing the distance between patient and researcher, and will hear from Quebec government, research, patient and industry leaders about how organizations are engaging patients in the research enterprise and what they see for the future.
This conference is designed to equip you with the skills and motivation required to take action and partner with patients to improve care. It will look at how patient engagement in health care has evolved, where it is heading and what it contributes to the innovative capacity of healthcare organizations. Best practices in patient recruitment and training, tools to evaluate engagement efforts, and innovative partnership methods will be presented. The healthcare community will discover resources and models to help initiate or further their own efforts, and healthcare leaders will discuss next steps they must take to support the spread of patient partnership.
