Patient and Community Engagement Training
Engage patients and the community with your research
The Patient and Community Engagement Training Program (PaCET) prepares trainees to understand the complexity of women and/or children’s health and to navigate stakeholder dynamics in collaborative, transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral projects. The objective of the program is to build capacity and support practice in non-academic stakeholder (patient/community) engagement in women and/or children’s health research.
Awards of up to $1,000 per month are available for a maximum of eight months (September to April).
The 2017 competition is now closed. This competition is offered annually in May.
The candidate must be:
- registered in a full-time, graduate studies or postdoctoral program at the University of Alberta.
- affiliated with a research program/project directly relevant to women and/or children’s health that involves stakeholders (patients, clinicians, community groups, government and/or non-government organizations (NGOs)) at the mid-high level of engagement.
- a WCHRI member.
- mentored by a project supervisor who is a WCHRI member.
WCHRI is pleased to announce the awardees of the 2017 PaCET grant competition.
