Albertans4HealthResearch provides a space where we can collaborate, learn and innovate to advance the science and practice of Patient Engagement in Patient-Oriented Research.

We are passionate about the meaningful engagement that can happen through support, mutual respect and inviting diverse perspectives. We believe that by working together with patients, caregivers, family members and friends with personal experiences of health issues or the healthcare system, we can make healthcare research more accessible and relevant to all Albertans.

Land Acknowledgment

The Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit operates on and acknowledges the lands that are the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. This includes the Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We make this acknowledgment as a reaffirmation of our shared commitment towards reconciliation, and as part of AbSPORU’s mandate towards fostering health system transformation.
