Description


The purpose of the Patient & Public Engagement Funding Award is to encourage and provide support for Manitoban health researchers and students to actively and meaningfully involve patients and the public in the early stages of their research project ―  meaning in the research priority-setting, design and grant development phases.

The George & Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) is the Manitoba SUPPORT Unit for the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR). A critical element of patient-oriented research, as it is defined by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, is the active and meaningful involvement of patients and/or members of the public as partners in health research. At CHI, we define patient and public engagement in health research as:

People with lived experience of a health issue, informal caregivers, families, friends and communities having a say in decision-making about the research process ― including research priorities, questions, outcome measures, design, methodology, data collection approaches, interpreting findings, and dissemination methods.

Evidence has demonstrated that one of the most important stages of the research process for patients and the public to be engaged is that of research design and grant development. In order to help facilitate and support Manitoban health researchers and students in engaging patients and the public in the early stages of their research work, the George and Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation, in partnership with the Manitoba SPOR Network in Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations (PIHCI), will be offering 10 funding awards of $2,000 each.*

Successful applicants will be offered training and additional opportunities to learn more about patient and public engagement in health research.  Award recipients will be invited to a reception to present their engagement work.

Students, Indigenous researchers, and those applying for PICHI grants are all encouraged to apply.
