Survey on the Need for Patient-oriented Research Capacity Building Opportunities
Patient-oriented research has come to the forefront of healthcare research, but there is a lack of capacity among researchers and patients in how to conduct patient-oriented research. To meet this training need, the Knowledge Translation Program received a grant from the Ontario Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) Support Unit to develop and deliver a course called Partners in Research (PiR). They delivered PiR 4 times over the past 2 years and have received positive feedback from both patient and researcher participants, as well as continued interest from people wanting to take the course in the future. As the funding for this course comes to an end, they are requesting feedback to help determine the need and interest in continuing to offer the PiR course. The information provided will be helpful as they develop a plan to sustain the PiR course beyond the grant funding period. In the interest of confidentiality, all information provided will be anonymised. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. They ask that you complete the short survey by November 20th.
