Webinar on ENGAGE: a project to involve low-literacy patients in research

On June 12, 2020, Christine Loignon, associate professor at the Université de Sherbrooke, Sophie Dupéré, associate professor at Université Laval, and Caroline Leblanc, doctoral student in health sciences at the Université de Sherbrooke, will present the ENGAGE project in a webinar organized by the Quebec Population Health Research Network (QPHRN), under the Social Health Inequalities and Equity grouping.

The purpose of this webinar was to share the experience of co-constructing a tool to promote participation in research among people who are often excluded from traditional research designs. Through a partnership between public health and visual and aural anthropology researchers and community partners working in literacy, the group built an online tool consisting of different modules. These modules contain a range of information to help both researchers and community partners develop and participate in research involving individuals who are generally underrepresented in research and are affected by social inequality, poverty, social exclusion and low literacy.

Learn about the co-construction process and the different areas of expertise available through the ENGAGE project. The speakers present the website and have discussions with people who are interested in the project and who have work, experiences or expertise to share on the website (
