The Podcast

There’s a lot of enthusiasm for patient engagement and partnership right now, but not a lot of opportunities for more nuanced or critical dialogue about the things we take for granted, or maybe don’t even notice. Podcasting provides an ideal vehicle to host conversations and reflections that we think may shed more light on why some issues continue to be difficult or confounding.

Jennifer and Emily host each episode, providing a blend of interviews (with patient partners, researchers, academics and engagement professionals), scripted narration, and presentation of existing research papers and opinion pieces. The goals for each episode are slightly different – perhaps to further a conversation already being had, or to give name to experiences that are hard to describe, or to draw on research and theory to attempt to explain why things are the way they are.
