“Methods Matters” is a monthly webinar series from the BC SUPPORT 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!
Sept 9, 2021 | Advancing Patient-Centred Measurement in Team-based Care
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: To be announced

June 10, 2021 | Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) for Falls Prevention
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
Moderator: Craig Mitton
May 13, 2021 | The Peer Models Network
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!
Presented by: Stephanie Harvard, Amin Adibi, and Zhina Majdzade

April 15, 2021 | Using Natural Language Processing and Social Media Listening in Patient-Oriented Research
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.
