Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
Canada’s Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is hosting an online discussion to solicit ideas from the health research community on future priorities for patient-oriented research. Patient-oriented research, which is foundational to evidence-informed health care, refers to a continuum of research that engages patients, caregivers and their families, health professionals, decision-makers, researchers and other knowledge users and communities as partners.
SPOR and CIHR invite you to share your views on what should be the areas of focus for patient-oriented research over the next five years. The online discussion will begin with a short survey, followed later in the summer by an online discussion forum on the common research priorities and themes identified from the survey results. The sponsors encourage you to participate in the online discussion and share the link with stakeholders within your network.
The survey is now available on the CIHR Let’s Talk website and social media channels. The survey closes September 17, 2021. The sponsors are open to receiving responses by phone or mail as indicated in the survey.
