Patient-Oriented Research Training in French in Moncton

The Diabetes Action Canada Training and Mentoring Group in collaboration with the Maritime SPOR SUPPORT Unit (MSSU) is pleased to invite you to participate in the Patient-Oriented Research Training Session in French on Thursday, March 15th and Friday, March 16, 2018 at the Université de Moncton (Léopold-Taillon Building, Room 157 Richelieu, 18 Antonine-Maillet St., Moncton). This training session will focus on patient engagement and POR application in diabetes research (see attached draft agenda).

The POR Training Session is an opportunity to develop a common understanding of patient engagement in health research and enable research teams wishing to engage diverse stakeholders. Many hands-on activities allow participants to not only integrate the POR concepts developed, but also to share their research interests and build relationships with other participants. This is an opportunity for patients and researchers to meet and develop new collaborations!

This training session is offered free of charge. In addition, the DAC Training and Mentoring Group will cover the costs for travel and accommodations for DAC members attending the POR Training Sessions. An expense form will be sent via email after proof of participants’ attendance at the POR Training.
