What is the Patient Engagement Resource Centre?

The goal of the Primary Health Care Patient Engagement Resource Centre is to promote and support the meaningful and appropriate engagement of patients (meaning people with lived experience of a health issue, their families, friends and caregivers) in primary health care research in Ontario.


The Resource Centre provides information, resources and methods support to foster partnerships between researchers and patients to conduct research that addresses patients' needs, preferences and priorities for their health and health care.

The Patient Engagement Resource Centre is funded by the INSPIRE-Primary Health Care Research Network

of the Ontario SPOR (Strategy for Patient Oriented Research) SUPPORT Unit (OSSU).
