Growing Patient and Family Engagement in Child Health Research
Dr. Karen Beattie, Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics; Co-Chair, Family Advisory Council, Hamilton Health Sciences
Active and meaningful collaboration with patients and families is becoming more familiar – and required – in research. Still, many have questions about the who/what/when/why and how of engagement. In this session, Dr. Karen Beattie will share her knowledge and experiences as a researcher, parent, family advocate and engagement leader, outlining a framework, strategies, and resources for successful engagement. As the Department of Pediatrics begins to build a platform for patient and family engagement in child health research, we also want to hear from you – our research teams – as to what tools and supports would be helpful for engagement of patients and families in your own work. Join us for this important conversation!
