Event type: CHSRF hosted

CHSRF’s Patient Engagement Projects (PEP) initiative supports project teams led by decision-makers from healthcare organizations who aim to improve the quality of care, effectiveness and efficiency of health services by engaging patients in their design, delivery and evaluation. The purpose of the Patient Engagement Projects initiative is to uncover and disseminate lessons learned and promising practices leading to care that is truly patient-centred. 

CHSRF released a second call for PEPs in 2011, resulting in the selection of seven new teams (PEP II) who will begin their two-year projects after the workshop on September 15 and 16. These teams will have an opportunity to network with 2010 teams, as well as obtain guidance on the development of their project implementation and evaluation plans due at the end of November 2011.

Funding for these learning events is made available by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer.
