A hallmark of PCORI’s work has been the engagement of the public and patients in clinical comparative effectiveness research. This breakout session at the 2019 PCORI Annual Meeting features experienced patient partners who have participated in a range of research studies and engagement efforts. Panelists share their experiences and provide practical advice for researchers and engagement coordinators on ways to operationalize engagement and build constructive relationships and teams. For patient partners, the panel offers advice on applying personal experience to the design and implementation of a research study.
