To help us communicate the impact of patient engagement in Can-SOLVE CKD, we are asking project leads to consider sharing a brief testimonial reflecting on their experience. This can be a short statement (2-3 sentences) about the general importance of working with patients as well as any personal or professional outcomes from Can-SOLVE CKD patient engagement activities. An example is provided below:

“In health research we work to generate and translate new information for beneficial effects on people and the healthcare system. My training in patient orientated research (CIHR curriculum), and experiences so far (executing research with patients as full partners) has made me a more effective researcher, giving me new ways to conduct research that has the potential for bigger impact.” – Dr. Amit Garg
