SPOR Patient-Oriented Research Curriculum

This course is designed to give patients a foundational understanding of the research enterprise. It is equally intended to help equip patients, researchers and other stakeholders (i.e., health care professionals and system decision-makers) with the skills necessary to engage meaningfully in a variety of roles, including: governance, peer review or other committee work, priority-setting, and the conduct of patient-oriented research and to foster the attitudes essential to the formation and development of genuine partnerships.
 
The course is intended to enable participants to:
  • acquire foundational knowledge about health research to allow them to become full-fledged members of a research team;
  • build mutually beneficial partnerships for conducting patient-oriented research; and
  • work as a team to carry-out patient-oriented research and produce high-quality scientific knowledge in a given health-related field.
 

Course Modules:

Module 1: Patient-Oriented Research
Module 2: Fundamentals of Health Research in Canada
Module 3: Building Partnerships and Consolidating Teams
