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 including robust engagement activities for grant proposals, and identify resources to assist with planning stakeholder engagement. Course instructors include UW-Madison faculty and national leaders in the methods of stakeholder engagement.
