“Methods Matters” is a monthly webinar series from the Unit’s Methods Clusters to showcase emerging research in patient-oriented research methods.
Hear from Methods Cluster project teams throughout BC who are doing patient-oriented research while studying patient-oriented research!
What are experiences of healthcare providers in applying patient-centered measures in care? What can decision makers do to help? Our study developed a resource guide to answer these questions.
In this webinar, hear about our guide, as well as the providers’ barriers and facilitators to implementation we discovered along the way.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all to adapt— including our care delivery and our research.
One Methods Cluster project pivoted from personal health records to electronic data sharing, virtual care, and patient empowerment.
In this webinar, Lindsay Burton and Mindy Smith discuss lessons from this project on post-pandemic sustainability of virtual care, and the need for flexibility in conducting meaningful and patient-centered research.

Patients are often asked to complete surveys about their health and care preferences.
But, how can we meaningfully integrate these data into care?
In this webinar, we will present new methods to encourage data sharing between patients and their care team—and, explore ways that this can make a patient’s care more patient-centred.
Presented by: Selena Davis and Marcy Antonio
Moderator: Paul Burgener
Can PROMS lead to cost savings and better health outcomes?
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how The Falls Prevention Clinic at Vancouver General Hospital partnered with very frail older adults to understand how PROMs can be used to improve adherence to Falls Clinic recommendations.
Better adherence = Less falls over time!
We’ll discuss patient partner feedback during the process, thoughts to consider when working with frail and older populations, and next steps in this work.
Presented by: Jennifer Davis and Daria Tai

More and more, healthcare decisions are being informed by scientific computer models.
Our research team The Peer Models Network is passionate about computer modelling—and passionate about engaging patients and members of the public!

People use social media to share information about their health issues, preferences, and experiences in ways that can be really helpful to developing and managing new health technologies in a more patient-centred way. This project developed a software tool that makes it easier to engage in “social media listening”, an emerging approach to analyzing patient experiences and patient preferences that applies text analysis techniques to social media conversations (e.g., Reddit chat forums).
In this webinar, we will describe this software tool’s development and illustrate its capabilities using a case study.
