Opportunity Purpose
The Health Informatics Equity lab conducts research on health technologies and health equity. This is an exciting and rapidly changing field, and it is essential for us to partner with patients and the public at the forefront to ensure that what we do makes a meaningful difference. We are looking for 5-10 long-term advisory members who are patients and/or members of the public to guide our research efforts on an ongoing basis.

Patient partners will participate in monthly online lab meetings to discuss our research projects. We recognize that different people have different interests, experience, and expertise. Partners will have the option to select which projects they wish to be involved with. Partners can provide input into research questions and priorities and participate in research activities as their interests and availability align.

The question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
