The PREFeR(PRioriEtes For Research) Project: Patient priorities for primary care research in British Columbia

The PREFeR(PRioritEs For Research aims to identify patient-generated priorities for primary care research in British Columbia, comparing patient and primary care provider perspectives using online surveys.  We also survey what research is being done on the priorities in BC.

Please complete this 5-10 minute online survey about patient and primary care provider priorities for future primary care research in British Columbia.  Every response helps us better understand the priorities of British Columbians.

The survey is open to all patients and primary care providers in BC from now until May 2018.  Responses are provided anonymously and will be kept confidential.  The survey is hosted on the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation’s REDCap survey platform, which conforms to the highest privacy standards.
