Learn how researchers and patients working together can result in better health
When health research intersects with engaged patients, amazing things can happen. After all, curing polio not only required the lab work of Dr. Jonas Salk, but also the engagement of thousands of doctors and millions of 1950s school children—the “Polio pioneers”—to test his vaccine.
On March 13, 2017, patients, researchers, providers, and health care advocates will come together at the University of Utah campus to promote new collaborations for research advances at the 12th Annual Health Services Research Conference.
You can join this exciting and growing network for a day of innovation, dynamic presentations and discussion about how to improve engagement and outcomes with patients, caregivers, providers, policymakers and payors. Interactive sessions include how to engage communities in research, humanizing critical care, how to create patient and family advisory councils, and a live demonstration of the studio-approach to patient feedback and collaboration.
*The conference is free for patients and family members, community members and speakers. The cost is $10 for students and $25 for health professionals, faculty or government employees.
