What is the Patient Engagement Resource Centre?
The goal of the Primary Health Care Patient Engagement Resource Centre is to help primary health care researchers in Ontario meaningfully engage patients in their research. The Resource Centre is primarily intended to support primary health care researchers to build patient partnerships to undertake patient oriented research.

What does the Patient Engagement Resource Centre do?
The objectives of the Resource Centre are to:

  1. Enhance the awareness, knowledge and skills of primary health care researchers in patient engagement for research
  2. Facilitate the linkage of primary health care researchers with patients, communities and organizations that are willing to collaborate for research
  3. Provide a collaborative platform for primary health care researchers in Ontario with an interest in patient engagement in research
  4. Contribute to the knowledge base of patient engagement in primary health care research

What can the Patient Engagement Resource Centre do for me?

  • ​Find key resources on patient engagement for research
  • Provide assistance with methods for engaging patients in research.
  • Receive advice from a Patient Advisory Board
