SCPOR Patient-Oriented Research Level of Engagement Tool

This tool can be used to measure the degree to which a project meets the definition of patient-oriented research as described by the CIHR Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR). The tool uses five criteria adopted from SPOR published documents and rates each on a scale from 1 to 5.

The criteria include:

  • patients are partners,
  • patient identified priorities,
  • outcomes important to patients,
  • team is multidisciplinary, and
  • team aims to integrate knowledge into practice.
