Research on Patient Engagement in Health Services

Engaging patients can help to meaningfully redesign the way health care is provided


This project seeks to establish the best methods for engaging patients in reviewing and improving health services. Leading work in England favours a continuum of patient and client involvement, ranging from complaints to co-designing services. Researchers at the University of Toronto aim to assess the various patient engagement strategies to provide recommendations on how they can best be put to use.
