Engaging patients before and after childbirth from all walks of life in health research

May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A multidisciplinary and cross-institutional research team is developing a strategy to foster diversity in patient engagement in the perinatal period. The strategy will outline the best ways to identify and engage diverse patient representatives in pregnancy and postpartum to improve our understanding of their health and health concerns.

This dialogue session will provide an opportunity to present the draft strategy and gather feedback from health partners. Learnings from this session will be incorporated into the patient engagement strategy and shared with all interested parties for future adaptation and use. This workshop may support future research projects achieve greater patient engagement from historically underrepresented populations.

The research team welcomes a broad audience of patients, researchers, healthcare providers, and health system decision-makers. The team is particularly keen to include those with lived experience of pregnancy as well as researchers, clinicians, and decision-makers in the field of maternal and child health.

This session is part of Health After 2020. The Health After 2020 program at UBC Health supports researchers to engage in interdisciplinary collaborations and build a community of UBC Health scholars. Through the development of research collaborations, academic outputs, cross-campus conversations, and open dialogue sessions, the program convenes and informs people at the inflection point in our society created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
