Public and patient engagement (PPE) in health care, policy and research is increasingly seen as a key strategy to drive health system transformation, and ultimately, better health outcomes.

As British Columbia’s health research funder, MSFHR is relatively new to this area but is keen to take a leadership role in implementing PPE in a funding organization. Here, the MSFHR team leading the Foundation's public and patient engagement strategy reflect on the valuable lessons learnt while developing the strategy, and where we go from here.
