The call for abstracts is now open. Abstracts are due June 17 for the October 4 conference.

By addressing questions relevant to patients first, patient-oriented research can impact the delivery of care because it is about “ensuring that the right patient receives the right intervention at the right time”. The BC SUPPORT Unit Fraser Centre has been supporting Fraser Health teams in their patient-oriented projects and we know there are plenty more out there. Now is your chance to showcase your patient-oriented research experiences.

Any patient-oriented research experience, project or competency that could help advance the community of stakeholders interested in patient-oriented research is welcome to apply. This year’s conference theme is Lessons Learned for Patient-Oriented Research. Students, clinicians, patients, and researchers are all encouraged to apply. The abstract deadline is June 17. See our Call for Abstracts page.

Putting Patients First: Lessons Learned for Patient-Oriented Research (#PPF18) will be held on October 4 at the Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle Downtown in Vancouver.

Attending the conference will increase your understanding about how patient-oriented research can impact clinical practice, how you can involve patient partners in your research activities, build connections with diverse stakeholders, and learn about available resources and supports. This free conference was fully subscribed and very well received last year. Learn more about why this conference is important to patients, researchers and health care providers, and read about our conference goals and learning objectives. This conference has been accredited by Patients Included.
