Chapter 19 Bringing health economics knowledge to non-economists in Quebec, Canada: a case study of a multi-modal knowledge transfer approach for patient-oriented research (POR)
Restricted access

The medical and health services sector is increasingly looking at health economics to answer questions of resources allocation, reimbursements, and efficiency. Beneficiaries are patients and their families who carry the burden associated with their health conditions. As such, there is an increasing concern for integrating patients in research. In the context of the Canadian Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research, a team was put together in the province of Quebec to support capacity building and knowledge transfer in health economics. The team includes researchers and patients across the province. This chapter is a case study explaining the approach with the services and training tools that were developed: tutorials, a protocol review service, a mapping of resources, in-person workshops and development of tools that could support integration of the patient perspective. A discussion about the value of this project is presented.
