Calls for more diversity and better representation among engaged patients or patient partners seem to prompt changes to recruitment tactics and making engagement more accessible. What if there’s more to it than that? We talk to Paula Rowland about the paper she co-authored (with Arno Kumagai) called “Dilemmas of Representation“, which applies the concept of “recruitmentology” to engagement practice, explores types of representation, and explains why we may encounter trouble when there’s a mismatch of expectations.
