Patient/Public Engagement

The Manitoba SPOR PIHCI Network (MPN) is seeking individuals to join the MPN Patient/Public Engagement Group and Patient/Public Engagement Network. In both roles patient/public advisors work in partnership with clinicians, researchers and policymakers to ensure studies focus on patient identified priorities.

The MPN Patient and Caregiver Advisory Committee is a group of about 10 Manitobans. Members ensure MPN considers the needs of the patients and their caregivers.

The group meets three times a year. Each meeting runs for approximately two hours. Members of the MPN Patient and Caregiver Advisory Committee are also network members.

The Patient/Public Engagement Network is a way to connect researchers and people with lived experience. The network lets people know about opportunities to collaborate with researchers.

Network members receive updates about upcoming studies. Members are then able to volunteer for the opportunities that best fit their experiences. Time commitment will vary by study.

To join the MPN Patient and Caregiver Advisory Committee or Patient/ Public Engagement Network contact Jennifer Pepneck to express your interest.
