About Lisa:

Lisa brings a wealth of experience in both patient engagement and knowledge translation. She has held various leadership positions in both government and not-for-profit at the provincial, national, and international levels. Perhaps most relevant, Lisa co-authored a pragmatic KT guide for mental health and co-designed the how-to guide for integrating the patient voice into health research. She is an energetic facilitator who uses session design to give participants a better tool kit for hosting their own engagement events.

Lisa works as a Program Coordinator for the Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit Patient Engagement Platform.

About Diane:

Diane brings an eclectic array of academic and pragmatic skills to facilitate this workshop including her background as a clinical pharmacist; training in project management and adult education; and experience implementing knowledge translation activities including academic detailing initiatives, audit and feedback interventions, opinion leader sessions and educational events.
