Patient Centre

We are a people-first organization, working hard to ensure our studies are patient- and caregiver-centered. We want to hear from you!

Two ways to get involved:

Join an active study as a participant.
Studies actively recruiting are listed below.
Join our network as a Patient/Caregiver Partner!
Our partners bring their personal experiences with illness and different treatments, and guide us to focus on meaningful patient outcomes and effective ways to communicate our studies with patients.
“Canada has been at the forefront of palliative care for more than 50 years, but still too few have access to early palliative care services within their community. Understanding how we can better identify palliative needs for patients not only improves their quality of life, but relieves pressure on caregivers.”
