Patient Engmt Initiative Funds $2.6M+ in Projects & Research

From the CHSRF website:

"July 22, 2010 – The Canadian Health Services Research Foundation, the Health Council of Canada and the Max Bell Foundation have partnered to fund 12 intervention projects and two accompanying research projects through CHSRF’s Patient Engagement Initiative. The three partners’ joint investment of $1,350,000 will leverage a further $1,325,000 from the selected teams through cash or in-kind contributions (applicants were required to secure matching co-sponsorship support).

The purpose of the 12 patient engagement projects (PEPs) is to support activities that engage patients in the design, delivery and evaluation of health services, with the goal of improving the quality of care. The funded PEPs will undertake an evaluation of their patient engagement processes, outputs and outcomes, and evaluate the implications of their interventions on the quality of patient-centred care services."
