Patient Engagement

A new focus on patient-centred care and informed decision-making has become increasingly important in kidney healthcare research.

Patient partners are an essential part of Triple I and have been involved in the following areas of the project:

  • Study design and topics of focus
  • Developing questionnaires, focus group guides and surveys
  • Recruitment
  • Analysis
  • Dissemination of results

Patient partners’ perspectives are invaluable to the project and we thank our partners for their continuing contributions.
