The Added Value of Partnerships in Research: Effectively Engaging Communities and Patients

Date Mon, Feb 10
Time 2: 00 PM - 3: 30 PM
Location Zoom Webinar

Engaging communities and patients throughout the study process can positively impact health research, particularly when addressing complex health problems. These partnerships can also increase competitiveness in research grant applications, as patient and community engagement is a growing expectation among funders. Despite researchers’ interest in building partnerships, they are often uncertain of effective approaches for engagement. Researchers may also be unaware of the most appropriate levels of community or patient involvement in their research, with variations in strength and intensity. 

This webinar will:

  • describe effective engagement strategies to help improve the quality of research grants and, ultimately, the health of individuals and the general public
  • help investigators identify levels of community or patient engagement that is most appropriate for their research

Learning Objectives 

Through participation in this webinar, investigators will be able to:

  1. Identify levels of engagement appropriate for their research.

  2. Identify best practices to engage community organizations and patients in health research.

  3. Identify consultative resources for building effective and meaningful partnerships with culturally, racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse communities and patients.

Audience: Health researchers and research team members

This webinar is free and open to all. If you are interested in attending but unable to join the call live, please register and a link to the recording will be sent to you after the webinar. Please reach out to with any questions.
