Elevating the Patient Voice in Research

Increasing Patient Participation in Research

The “Elevating the Patient Voice in Research” project is designed to increase patient participation in research and guide future health research priorities. Made possible through a Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award for Conference Support, activities span one year.

Beginning in fall 2019, the CAPriCORN Patient Community Advisory Committee (PCAC) and the Health & Medicine Policy Research Group are partnering with local organizations to gather input from a wide range of community members. The opinions collected from the sessions ultimately will lead to the convening of a one-day conference that will provide a forum for sharing community findings, identifying research priorities, and making a plan to distribute information to a wider healthcare audience.
