Participate in Patient-Oriented Research

BC SUPPORT Unit Island Centre

I have personal experience in the BC healthcare system.

Do you have personal experience as a patient in the BC health system, or are you caring for someone who does? Do you have ideas about how the system could work better, or unanswered questions about your health condition?

Patient research partners include anyone directly affected by a health condition, illness, or health system issue: family members, loved ones, and caregivers as well as patients. Whether you're interested in joining a research team, helping to set priorities for future research, or contributing to events and education, your experience provides a unique and valuable perspective.

I work in the BC healthcare system, and/or I conduct health research.

Are you interested in partnering with patients to identify research priorities? Looking for grant-writing or ethics support for a patient-oriented research project?
