The Canadian Donation and Transplantation Research Program in cooperation with the Organ Donation and Transplantation Collaborative and the Canadian Society of Transplantation, is happy to announce the third edition of the Patient, Family and Donor Research Forum dedicated to donation and transplantation research partners across Canada was held on June 22-23, 2022.

The Forum’s objectives were:

  1. To advance collaboration between investigators and patient, family, donor (PFD) partners in donation and transplantation research;
  2. To educate investigators and PFD partners on emerging best practices regarding the inclusion of PFDs in research and knowledge translation activities; 
  3. To promote researchers to present their work that has evolved with a PFD perspective.


During the Patients, Families & Donors in Knowledge Translation portion of the forum, Can-SOLVE CKD Project Manager Alicia Murdoch and Patient Partnerships and Training Manager Linnea Franson presented “Embedding patient engagement: the Can-SOLVE CKD experience.”
