As part of our mission, we advocate for patient-led and patient-involved research as well as policies that enable patients, particularly the most marginalized, to access care and live with dignity. Our advocacy spans many areas – from advocating to ensure Long COVID research is methodologically sound and reflective of the patient experience to advocating for disability benefit reform.

Below we list our key previous and ongoing forms of advocacy, as well as related publications and documents. For questions or to collaborate, please email or Lisa McCorkell at
