Description:

Part I of the program will be a recap of what is patient engagement, why it’s needed, and some ways to achieve. It will be a high level overview. The speakers are highly engaged in patient engagement and have developed a patient partnership platform in the Canadian Donation and Transplantation Research Program. Part II of the program will be focussed on patient engagement from the patient point of view. Part III will discuss medical disparities experienced by ethnically and racially diverse patients and identify what attendees need to know to begin to break down systemic problems. It is key to know what these barriers are as we seek to engage with all patient populations.
