Our Patient Research Partners
What is a Patient Research Partner?
IMAGINE is a research network funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) as part of its Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR). SPOR’s slogan “Putting patients first” implies that the priorities of patients are most important and should be used to set the research agenda. Research is then being conducted ‘with’ or ‘by’ patients and other relevant stakeholders, rather than ‘for’ them.
