If you have questions about how to engage in research, talk to different members of your child’s healthcare team because they will most likely know of research opportunities. Many organizations also have parent groups (in-person or online) that you can also join:
Child Bright: https://www.child-bright.ca/become-a-patient-partner
Chronic Pain Network: http://cpn-rdc.ca/get-involved
Access Open Minds: http://accessopenminds.ca/about/opportunities/
Diabetes Action Canada: https://diabetesaction.ca/get-ready-to-be-a-patient-partner/
IMAGINE Network: http://imaginespor.com/participate-in-research/
You could also consider registering for the Kids Brain Health Network (KBHN) Family Engagement in Research Course to learn more about engaging in research.
To stay updated with current studies and research opportunities, please follow us on Facebook, Twitter @canchild_ca and sign-up for our monthly newsletter.
