CNTRP Patient Engagement meeting in Toronto brings patients, families, care givers and researchers t
The CNTRP organized and hosted a successful workshop in Toronto last week that brought patients, families, care givers and researchers together to discuss research priorities in donation and transplantation and determine how to meaningfully engage patients as partners across the CNTRP.
The event was funded by several CIHR Institutes, including the Institute of Infection and Immunity, the Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health, the Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes, the Institute of Gender and Health, and the Institute of Cancer Research.
A thank you to all the patients, families and care givers that participated in the meeting and shared their ideas and hopes for improving donation and transplantation research across Canada. The next steps from the meeting include publishing the revised research priorities identified during the meeting and creating an action plan for integrating patients and families into the research structure of the CNTRP.
