Engagement in Research Nuts and Bolts: Specific Approaches for Engaging Patient and Community Partners in Research

October 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to engaging patient, community, or other partners in your research. Rather, there are a variety of engagement methods to suit your study’s needs, your research team’s capacity, and your partners’ interests.

This online training will describe three common approaches for working with patient, community, and other partners in your research: 1) consultative community feedback sessions; 2) advisory boards; and 3) sustained collaboration with partners as members of the research team.

The session will cover considerations for choosing these specific engagement methods, as well as concrete processes and steps for implementing each approach. Participation in our Engagement in Research 101 training is not required to attend this session; however, some knowledge of engagement, whether from prior training(s) or personal experience, may foster deeper understanding of the material in this session.
