BRIC NS launches patient partner orientation guide

In collaboration with our Patient Engagement Working Group, BRIC NS has developed a Quick Guide for people who are interested in getting involved in research.  This is the first of a series that will eventually make up four booklets.

Information we include has been adapted,with permissions, from others who have created similar type booklets such as INVOLVE in the United Kingdom. Support and advice for changes to reflect our Canadian environment were provided by patient partners who worked with us to ensure we cover the kinds of information people need when first becoming engaged in research.

You can download the Quick Guide here and find it under the Resources section of our website.
