Interested in learning more about patient-oriented research ?

Whether you are a health researcher, a health professional, or a community member, you may be interested in learning more about patient-oriented research (POR).

Patients, families and caregivers are discovering how much they have to contribute to health research — their expertise in coping with their illness or caring for a family member gives them a perspective that can profoundly shift the research that is carried out.

More and more, researchers and health policy makers are harnessing this expertise to co-create research that is responsive and relevant to patient concerns. The  Saskatchewan Centre for Patient-Oriented Research (SCPOR) is offering a one-day workshop for anyone interested in learning how to conduct this type of research.

Upcoming workshops in Regina:

March 2, 2018: 8:30 a.m. — 2:45 p.m. for Module: 1 Foundations in Patient-Oriented Research 2:45—4:00 p.m. for Module 2: Fundamentals of Health Research in Canada.

April 13, 2018: Module 1 at 8:30 a.m. — 2:45 p.m. and Module 2 at 2:45—4:00 p.m.

Training will be held at Wascana Rehabilitation Centre (2180 23rd Ave., Regina) in the 2nd floor north wing boardroom. Lunch is provided for Module 1.

These workshops are sponsored by SCPOR and registration is free for participants.
