Message from the Ontario SPOR SUPPORT UNIT (OSSU)


OSSU is pleased to share with you a special supplement highlighting the value of patient engagement in research through 17 innovative OSSU-funded IMPACT Demonstration projects. Engaging Patients in Health Research: the Ontario Experience, published today in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal), features in-the-trenches experiences, tips and challenges from 17 IMPACT projects ranging from youth involvement in mental health services to suicide prevention, Indigenous health, children with complex medical needs and more.

The comprehensive collection of articles is a resource for researchers and others interested in this growing approach that involves patients and caregivers as partners in health and health systems research. It is also a valuable addition to the literature.

An infographic and an engaging podcast featuring interviews with researchers and patients provide excellent overviews of the content.

As a stakeholder in patient-oriented research, we thought you would be interested in this unique collection. Please feel free to share it through your networks, on social media and through other communications channels.
