Thought of the day: Patient Orientated Research

15 Nov

What is patient orientated research? Sounds like a bit of a well-intentioned phrase coined to make researchers feel like they are doing something useful, whilst making patients feel like they’re at the centre of the universe. If you take off the cynic goggles however, patient orientated describes research that is answering a much needed question, that will ultimately help improve patient experience or quality of care. Now this is true public health in action, and as corny as that sounds, I think it’s important to keep the individuals in sight when working in public health.
