Tools for Patient-Oriented Research (for researchers)

To ensure that PHC researchers, trainees and research staff have the tools to engage patients/family and embed them into their research teams as new research studies are developed, CHÉOS has invited the BC SUPPORT Unit to provide a half-day workshop entitled “Tools for Patient-Oriented Research (for researchers)”.

Patient-oriented research supports patients working with research teams — bringing their knowledge and expertise to the table to help inform the what, how and impact of health research.

T4P provides research teams with exposure to existing tools and resources for patient-oriented research.

Registration is required via this link.

All registered attendees need to bring a laptop as they will be working on-line during the workshop. This event is free and lunch will be provided.

SPEAKER: Dr. Ed Kroc, Assistant Professor of Measurement, Evaluation, and Research Methodology within UBC’s Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology, and Special Education

About the topic: The statistical concept of the p-value has enjoyed a long and contentious history in applied quantitative research. Recent proclamations of “replicability crises” in the social and health sciences have inflamed the modern debate, yet while methodologists argue, applied researchers are left with less confidence than ever in their quantitative mettle. In this talk, designed for applied researchers, I will unpack these issues and discuss their specific implications for meta-analytic inferences. In particular, I will explain the interplay between p-values, statistical power, and non-normality of random effect sizes. Key meta-analytic inferences about a mean effect size and the dispersion of true effects in a meta-population are particularly sensitive to these issues under the usual random effects meta-analytic model. I will argue that the best way to extract accurate information from your p-values is to always interpret them within the context of the statistical power of the studies that have generated them.

About the speaker: Dr. Ed Kroc is an Assistant Professor of Measurement, Evaluation, and Research Methodology within UBC’s Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology, and Special Education. A graduate of UBC’s Department of Mathematics and a former post-doc in UBC’s Department of Statistics, he has long been interested in bridging the gap between statistical rigour and practical scientific research. Dr. Kroc’s particular research interests focus on ways to address this gap, as well as on statistical measurement, spatio-temporal modelling, and urban ecology.

Co-research with patient and family partners in a social robot study to improve dementia care

Health care research in the field of geriatrics and gerontology can benefit from the active involvement of patient and family partners. Involvement may begin with identifying priorities, then move to formulate research questions and to plan the research methods, to data collection, and finally to analysis and knowledge dissemination. Actively engaging patients and families in co-research in dementia care is a novel practice that needs exploration. In this project, two patient co-researchers (persons living with dementia) and three family co-researchers worked with four clinicians (two physicians, a nurse, and an occupational therapist) to investigate the impact of a social robot in dementia care at Vancouver General Hospital. The research team pushes the boundaries on the potential to build capacity to engage patients in innovative roles and models of patient engagement.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.
