  • Please describe how you meet the criteria, which can include personal, professional and volunteer experience (including roles on committees/boards) as it relates to this committee. (Though we ask you as a patient partner to 'leave your hat at the door,' it is useful to know your professional background and experience.)

Patient and family partners should not be a check box on research proposals! They need to be involved right from the start. I know patient and family partners are doing their part by providing their knowledge to researchers from their lived experience.  It’s a win-win for us to work together through PVN to make sure our input drives improvements.
