CIHR Ethics Guidance for Developing Partnerships with Patients and Researchers


The Guidance reflects feedback received through two phases of consultations:

  • targeted consultation from December 2017 to March 2018 with interested individuals and groups, including the CIHR Standing Committee on Ethics, to prepare a draft for public release, and
  • public consultation from November 26, 2018 to February 25, 2019.

CIHR thanks the Working Group and all of the many groups and individuals who provided advice and feedback through the development of the guidance. CIHR also thanks the Standing Committee on Ethics for its advice during the project, and for its endorsement of the Guidance in December 2019.
