Stronger voice for the public needed in health research

9 January 2014

In a new Vancouver Sun opinion piece, MSFHR Vice-President, Research Impact, Bev Holmes and Patient Voices Network Patient Partner Colleen McGavin discuss how a stronger voice for the public is needed in health research.

Holmes and McGavin write that British Columbians have a role to play in ensuring results are effectively used to improve care. Actions underway include the collaboration between MSFHR and the BC Ministry of Health to develop BC’s support unit as part of the national Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research to bring us closer to that goal — a stronger public voice.
