One focus of the ICTR Pilot Awards program is Stakeholder & Patient Engaged Research (SPER). The SPER provides support for research requiring strong stakeholder engagement methodology as a foundation for a success. Projects address health crises and/or disparities in health among high-risk populations including underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.
Forming Patient or Community Advisory Boards is a common strategy for stakeholder engagement. Advisory boards can take many forms and serve many functions. Importantly, boards provide an opportunity for the experiences and perspectives of people closest to the issue being studied to inform research questions, study designs and materials, and dissemination and implementation plans.
In this Panel Discussion, academic and community partners will share their experiences with two types of Patient/Community Advisory Boards:
- Project-specific advisory groups with limited time frame and narrow focus, recruiting people with specific life circumstances or identities that are relevant to the topic being studied
- Long-term advisory groups with a broader scope, offering feedback on a wide range of research materials and activities
