National Patient and Stakeholder Council
Patient-engagement in research is a dynamic process that supports mutual respect, clear communication, trust, and authentic participation of patients, caregivers, and other key stakeholders to address health issues that affect the well-being of individuals, groups and communities.
The STRIDE Study engages patients and other key stakeholders throughout the research process. Patients and other stakeholders have worked alongside the investigators in the preparation of this study through committee’s and work groups, and will continue to be engaged throughout the STRIDE Study’s implementation.
NPSC Mission Statement
The mission of the National Patient and Stakeholder Council (NPSC) is to promote and sustain the authentic participation and incorporation of the unique perspectives of patients, their caregivers, clinicians, community and government partners, and other fall prevention stakeholders into the STRIDE Study planning, implementation and dissemination. The NPSC develops and supports Local Patient and Stakeholder Councils at each of the STRIDE Clinical Trial Sites to directly engage with research partners in refining their Sites fall prevention approach.
