Canada’s Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research is moving forward apace. Conventional thinking is being challenged, with patients now asked to play the role of ‘research partner’ and not simply ‘research subject’. This session will explore the implications of this strategy and direction for the work of health economists. Is this a direction that health economists should embrace? If so, what might that look like?
Stirling Bryan is Director of the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology & Evaluation, Scientific Director of the BC SUPPORT Unit, Professor in the School of Population and Public Health, and a CHSPR associate faculty member.
