The CEPPP collaborates with the Institut national d’excellence en santé et services sociaux (INESSS) to structure the partnership with patients, users and caregivers within its teams for evaluating technologies and modes of intervention in health and in social services.

The participation of patients, users and caregivers, among others, allows the INESSS to collect and promote knowledge and know-how of various kinds to ensure the accuracy and social acceptability of its recommendations. In complementarity with different levels of participation (eg consultation through interviews, collaboration on committees), the partnership makes it possible to establish a real process of co-construction in an evaluation project. Through consulting expertise and the contribution of a patient coordinator, CEPPP supports INESSS in establishing a significant partnership with patients, users and caregivers in some of its projects.
