This session is part of the WCHRI Lunch & Learn theme for the year, with sessions related to community and patient engagement. This WCHRI Lunch & Learn workshop series will introduce our members to a number of research projects that have effectively engaged different social actors (patients, community organizations, community members, clinicians, decision/policy makers) as active partners in research.

The workshops in this series are interactive, with two primary aims: 1) to discuss the process of working together with different social actors in health research, and 2) to present the outcomes of such a research approach.
