Partnering with Patients to Improve Diagnosis

Our Eugene Washington Engagement Award from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute and in partnership with the Society for Improving Diagnosis in Medicine, will build a curriculum and processes for patients to partners with researchers and mentors on research in diagnosis. The MIQS research team led by Kelly M. Smith, PhD, are examining sustainable approaches to scaling patient-centered education on research and the diagnostic process to empower patient-partners to meaningfully engage in the continuum of research as collaborators and co-investigators.
