Speaker Series event 2

Peter Oxland and Dr. Thomas Stelfox co-presented at event two of the PE Platform’s Engaging People in Health Research | 2017 Speaker Series.

Peter and Tom have worked together extensively on the Critical Care Strategic Clinical Network and shared their collaborative work and how family members can influence the research process, which will hopefully influence change in health care. They also discussed the benefits and challenges of patient engagement in research.

The co-presentation was organized by the PE Platform and hosted at the University of Calgary (by the O’Brien Institute) on June 16, 2017.

The co-presentation had a very engaged in-person audience (comprising both patients and researchers), and was recorded as a webinar (requires Adobe Connect).
