Participate in Research

Monica’s projects are supported by both research participants and patients as partners. She has a continuum of research that focuses on patient-identified priorities for improved cardiovascular outcomes. 

Monica’s research is conducted within a multidisciplinary team that includes partnerships with relevant stakeholders. Patient partners that have worked with Monica have advised on search terms for systematic reviews, provided insights to grant proposals as co-investigators, assisted with participant recruitment, collected data, informed data interpretation, identified outcomes important to patients, and disseminated study results through presentation and publication. Opportunities to join Monica as a research participant or a patient partner are described below. 

All studies are approved by the University of Toronto Research Ethics Board. For more information or to take part contact: Monica Parry by email or call 416-946-3561

Research Participants Needed

We want to learn about your caregiving experiences.

Are you a caregiver? We are asking adults who care for other adults at home to complete a 20-30 minute survey about their experiences. Survey responses will help our team at the University of Toronto understand the mental health and well-being of unpaid caregivers.

We are looking for caregivers who:

Are over 18 years old

Provide unpaid care for a family member/friend who is also over 18 years old

Care for someone at home (in their own home or in the home of the person they care for)

Help us facilitate patient partnerships in research.

Patient Engagement Partnerships in Clinical Trials (PEP-CT)

Building partnerships, improving research quality and impact, and developing best practices underpin values that impact patient engagement in research. We have developed two decision aids (one for patients and one for investigators) to help patients and investigators determine if they are ‘ready’ to engage as/with a patient partner in research. The overall goal of this 2-year project is to refine, translate and evaluate the decision aids to improve sex/gender uptake and patient engagement partnerships in research. Decision aid development is guided by the International Patient Decision Aid Standards, User-Centered Design and the Ottawa Decision-Support Framework. English- and French-speaking patients are invited to our usability and field testing sessions (remotely, using Zoom).

Patient Partners Needed

Right now all of our patient partner positions are filled. Please keep in touch for future opportunities.
