Engaging peers in research
Suicide Prevention Ottawa’s (SPO), Research and Knowledge Exchange (RAKE) group connects research to action by endorsing promising.
The process for endorsing research projects aims to promote knowledge mobilization, and is co-designed by people with living and lived experiences (Peer WELL).
The applicant must submit a letter to RAKE and SPO that provides:
An explanation of the goals and objectives of the research;
A lay, non-scientific summary explaining how people with lived/living experiences have or will be involved.
An acknowledgement that they will participate in a knowledge mobilization event where they will deliver a presentation about their research to service providers, clinicians, other researchers and people with lived/living experiences.
