MasterClass for Patient Partners Engaging in Cardiovascular Research

Le Westin Montreal 270 Rue Saint-Antoine O, Montréal, Quebec, Canada

Workshop Description Meaningful, impactful cardiovascular research must be grounded in the needs and priorities of patients, caregivers, and family members (People With Lived Experience, or PWLE). The voices of PWLE must be present as research is conceptualized, funded, executed and evaluated. An engaged and “partner-ready” community of PWLE partners who can be active and engaged members of research initiatives is needed to maximize the impact of research, meet the needs of research funders and assure the centrality of PWLE perspectives. This free, day-long workshop is designed to train PWLE to be active and engaged members of research teams and to begin to build a community across Canada. This “engaged and ready community of PWLE partners” will serve as a key step toward meeting the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s (CIHR) strategy for patient-oriented research, which asserts that research be conducted with patients rather than to them. It is also central to the vision and value of the partners: HeartLife Foundation, CHF Alliance, and TRANSFORM HF. By building and supporting a vibrant PWLE partner community, we hope to foster more responsive research that best meets the needs of all people in Canada.  This MasterClass is meant for those who are living […]
