GHUCCTS breaks down "The Added Value of Partnerships in Research" in recent webinar

GHUCCTS recently hosted a free online webinar titled The Added Value of Partnerships in Research: Effectively Engaging Communities and Patients. This webinar is now available online.


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. 

Learning Objectives 

Through 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.

Added Value of Partnerships in Research

Our recent webinar outlines why engaging with community partners is so valuable in research, and how investigators can improve their community engagement efforts.
