Seeking an Older Adult Patient Partner on Physical Activity Research Team



Open to Fraser Valley & Lower Mainland


Opportunity Purpose
Our research team is looking for an older adult patient partner to contribute to multiple research projects about physical activity, possibly including surveys, interviews, and consensus meetings. Our main goal is to better understand what older adults seek to gain from engaging in physical activity, so that clinical trials measure those outcomes that matter most to older adults.

We would like an older adult to join research team meetings and review wording of informed consent forms, measurement tools (e.g., surveys, interview guides), and recruitment materials for relevance and accessibility. The patient partner would also help us test measurement tools and recruit study participants through their existing networks, if possible. The patient partner could be involved in interpretation of study results and publications.

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
