About this courseSkip About this course
There are many benefits to partnering with patients in medical research. Yet despite much to be gained, patients and researchers often fail to meaningfully partner to advance medical science. How might we create trusting relationships between patients and researchers? What models might exist to enable inclusivity and respect of all relevant stakeholders in the medical research enterprise? These are just some of the topics we will cover in this Stanford Online course.
Patients can move past the challenges of misunderstood roles and mismatched priorities to make practical contributions.
Patient research partnerships are reported as delivering value through every stage of the research process while increasing health self-management and research literacy. Learn how Everyone Included™ partnership in the medical research enterprise can improve the work of researchers and the lives of patients.
This course features leading faculty from Stanford University and global medical publishing experts leading efforts in patient partnership in medical research from one of the world's most influential general medical journals, The BMJ.
