Truly effective patient engagement requires stakeholder panels that connect stakeholders efficiently, involve stakeholders deeply, and are sustainable over time. Research programs, particularly those that seek to establish the effectiveness of interventions involving change in patient or provider behavior, are more likely to be successful if they engage the individuals that are the focus of the research. Furthermore, the likelihood of programmatic success is greater as the depth of engagement increases. The purpose of this project is to establish the Colorado Patient Partners in Research (CoPPiR) Network, an online community of patients who are willing to become active partners on specific research teams, and a Joint Patient Stakeholder Council, which comprises individuals with a broad range of backgrounds and health experiences, to govern and train advisory panels formed from the CoPPiR Network.
Collaborators include Kaiser Permanente Colorado, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, and Denver Health and Kaiser Permanente patients.
Project Collaborators: Kaiser Permanente Colorado, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, and Denver Health and Kaiser Permanente patients Project Outputs: Outputs include a social media campaign, creation of a Joint Patient Stakeholder Council, development of a Training and Development Curriculum for the council, and creation of a Colorado Patient Partners in Research.
