You’re Invited 

Stakeholder and patient engagement in research generates evidence that is more relevant and useful for real-world application, and facilitates both the dissemination and uptake of research findings. This two day short-course is dedicated to the “how to” of stakeholder engagement in translational research.

Who Should Attend 

This short course is designed for investigators and research teams who have received, or are thinking about applying for, research grants that will involve stakeholder engagement methods.

What to Expect 

Through this workshop’s didactic and experiential learning activities, you will gain skills to engage stakeholders (e.g., patients, community members, industry, clinical sites, payers and government agencies) to:
  •  Improve recruitment rates and diversity of participants in your research studies
  •  Reduce missing data or loss to follow up
  •  Select, refine, and measure high priority patient-centered outcomes
  • Enhance the uptake and real world impact of your research

Upon completion of this short course, participants will be able to write an engagement plan for grant proposals including robust engagement activities and thoughtful compensation for stakeholders and will be able to identify resources to assist with planning stakeholder engaged research. Course instructors include UW-Madison faculty and national leaders in the methods of stakeholder engagement.
