Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research
Patient-oriented research is about engaging patients, their caregivers, and families as partners in the research process. This engagement helps to ensure that studies focus on patient-identified priorities, which ultimately leads to better patient outcomes.
At CIHR, we want to help transform the role of patient from a passive receptor of services to a proactive partner who helps shape health research and, as a result, health care.
To help make patient-oriented research a reality in Canada, CIHR formed funding partnerships with provinces and territories, philanthropic organizations, academic institutions, and health charities.
Canada's Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) was born.
