Health Care Research Opportunities

In addition to engagement opportunities offered by our health care partners, we support health researchers through our partnership with REACH BC.

REACH BC is a new online platform that connects researchers to the public and to patients who are interested in participating in health research opportunities. The platform will house an online listing of all recruiting health research projects and patient partner research opportunities. Patient partner research opportunities will be cross-posted here on our website, if requested by the health researcher.

Please note: to view the full posting for any patient partner research opportunity, you must sign up to participate in REACH BC.
