Espace Proximité

ESPACE PROXIMITÉ is a collaborative space dedicated to patient-oriented research (POR). It connects all those involved in health through research, care or social services—patients and the public included—to co-construct a learning health system through POR.

Our communities of practice

Patient partners community expériences

The expériences community includes patient partners actively involved in the governance of the patient partnership and strategy as well as directly in research teams. It brings together various members of the Québec health and social services network, including researchers. This initiative comes from the Partnership Axis of the Unité de soutien SSA Québec and the Centre of Excellence in Partnership with Patients and the Public (CEPPP).

Marie-Dominique Poirier, patient partner

The patient-research partnership is based on my personal experience as a patient. This first-hand knowledge lets me approach research from a different angle—that of the patient—and allows me to make a small contribution to health care progress.
