Newsletter-January 2023

Hello from Patient-Led Research Collaborative (PLRC)! We are excited to share with you some important updates and highlights of our last few months.

Webinar Series:
Patient-Led Research Scorecards

In partnership with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS), we have developed scorecards that evaluate how effective a patient group and research partner collaboration will be at conducting truly patient-led research. 

We’re hosting three webinars that will explain the scorecards and teach how they can be used to promote patient-led research. These scorecards were developed based off our own experience partnering with research organizations, with input from our incredible advisory board, and using insights from interviews with patients, researchers, and funders.

Target audience:
Patients and patient organizations
Researchers and research organizations
