CIHR Foundational Curriculum in Patient-Oriented Research

An in-person training program developed by the SPOR National Working Group on Patient Engagement, this resource is designed to equip interested learners, including patients, researchers, health care professionals and other stakeholders, with the basic skills and knowledge to engage meaningfully in patient-oriented research. The Curriculum follows a co-learning model where all stakeholders can learn together and will be in a modular format. The course is always delivered by a patient partner and a research partner. In Ontario, this course has been delivered through OSSU and through numerous SPOR Networks with a presence in the province. Dates for future delivery of the Foundational Curriculum in Patient-Oriented Research are to be determined.
