Webinar: Recruiting Patient Partners for Research Projects

Funders and researchers want to partner with patients in health research, but it can be challenging for researchers to find patient partners. Recruiting patients as partners is not like recruiting subjects for research. This webinar will give you an understanding how an optimal patient partner recruitment process works and where to find patient partners.
