Understanding Research

A website created to demystify research and provides resources such as video tutorials, a glossary of research terms, and a guide for reading research articles. The website is organised into the following sections:

  • An introduction to science, research, patient-oriented research, and participatory research;
  • An introduction to research ethics;
  • An introduction to literature reviews;
  • An explanation of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research;
  • An introduction to evidence synthesis and dissemination.

This website was developed with and for patient partners, and underwent multiple rounds of user-centered evaluation. Understanding Research is valuable in the context of patient partnerships and patient-oriented research; it can also contribute to the public’s understanding and trust in science. This website is a collaboration between the Unité de Soutien SSA Québec, the Centre of Excellence on Partnership with Patients and the Public, and the Chronic Pain Network.

The monthly newsletter is intended for all who are involved or interested in partnership with patients and the public. Patient partners, students, research professionals, clinicians and managers can subscribe to receive information about our scientific activities and evidence feed!

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
