Who is PaCER?
PaCER stands for
Patient and Community Engagement Research
PaCER is a group of patient researchers, trained in qualitative health research, who are creating a new collective research voice with, by, and for patients.
PaCERs are citizens with a variety of health conditions who are trained to use their engagement skills to conduct health research.
Working in collaboration with medical researchers, health systems, and community organizations, PaCER is committed to finding better, stronger, and more creative ways of engaging patients in health care. This means building new partnerships and roles for patients.
