EMPOWER Digital Awards

Four more EMPOWER awards are being “powered” with OSSU funding to extend the impact of patient-oriented research in Ontario, this time with an increased focus on digital health solutions:

  • Helping adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities better manage and communicate about their health
  • Creating opportunities for patient engagement and sex and gender participation in clinical trials
  • Developing patient and family-centred outcomes in pediatric inherited metabolic disorder trials and
  • Helping prepare to roll out and expand the MyDiabetesPlan in to empower patients in Ontario to set goals and actions to manage their diabetes.

EMPOWER (Engaging Multi-stakeholders for Patient Oriented research Wider Effects & Reach) Awards aim to create meaningful change for patients, policy and practice by leveraging OSSU’s expertise and infrastructure.

Congratulations to the principal investigators and their teams.
