The Patient Outcomes Research to Advance Learning (PORTAL) Clinical Research Network (CRN) created this toolkit to support researchers who want to engage with patients in conducting research. This toolkit includes information and materials on how to recruit and train patient partners, offering patient engagement services, and collecting patient and scientific partner feedback.

PORTAL was formerly a Network Partner in PCORnet®, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network. PCORnet has been developed with funding from PCORI.
