The Summer Institute 2018 – Keys to Collaboration delivered once again on its theme of connecting, engaging and capacity-building.

Another successful Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit Summer Institute has ended providing keys for collaboration between patients, researchers, clinicians, students and more as they shared knowledge of patient-oriented research. The Summer Institute is a catalyst for new ideas and collaboration among participants who bring their enthusiasm and interest for patient-oriented research” said Marilynne Hebert, Co-lead, Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit Career Development Platform. Last year’s conference sparked the idea for the new patient-oriented collection at CMAJ Open and we expect that this year’s conference sparked new ideas and connections as well.
