From being engaged to designing engagement: Barriers and facilitators to patient involvement in health research
Emily Nicholas Angl
Patient Advisor, Patients Canada
Director of Health Engagement and Communications, Reframe Health Lab, St. Michael’s Hospital
Emily’s patient journey has taken her through ER’s, OR’s, MRI’s and many acronyms in between. Her broad range of experiences led to a keen interest in how patients can become partners in their own care and in health system improvement. Emily has been helping bring the patient voice to Canadian health care for over eight years. She previously sat on the board of Patients Canada and has worked as a patient advisor and patient engagement consultant with hospitals, government agencies and other organizations across Canada. Emily also facilitates workshops for both patients and providers which explore strategies for, and barriers to, patient engagement. Emily now works as Director of Health Engagement and Communication with Reframe Health Labs, founded by Dr. Mike Evans, where she specializes in bringing the patient perspective to RHL’s evidence-based approach to health and wellness communication.
