Articulating and Measuring the Value of Patient Engagement in Research
Research funding bodies in Europe and North America increasingly encourage or require grantees to engage patients not simply as research participants but as partners in all phases of research from topic generation to the dissemination of study results. Patient engagement has been said to improve the relevance, quality, and impact of research, but evidence of these benefits remains limited. I’ll discuss shortcomings of previous attempts to evaluate patient engagement and propose principles for more effective evaluation.
