PACER/SPH Travel Grant for patients and caregivers involved in research

The Patient-centred research (PACER) Network and the Sydney School of Public Health (SPH) travel grant provides support for patients/caregivers for domestic (within Australia/New Zealand) and international travel for research-related activities (including but limited to scientific conferences, research workshops, research fieldwork).

The PACER Network and the Sydney School of Public Health recognises the value of patient involvement in research. Patient involvement across all stages of the research process can ensure that the evidence addresses the values, goals, and priorities of patients to inform decisions and improve care and outcomes. Travel support can provide patients/caregivers with an opportunity to develop research skills, network, collaborate, and to contribute their experiences and perspectives in research activities.

CONGRATULATIONS to the Travel Grant Awardees!
