What is patient engagement in research funding? @(Model.HeadingTag)>
CCS aims to fund high impact research that is relevant to people affected by cancer and improves cancer outcomes. By engaging patients, survivors, thrivers, caregivers, and families (collectively, called "patients"), we can make sure people affected by cancer shape the way that research funding and funding decisions are made. It’s an active, collaborative role in governance, decision-making, research review, and other parts of research funding.

Engaging people affected by cancer is a core approach to our research strategy and is critical to achieving our research goals. Patient partners are engaged in all stages of the research funding process at CCS to ensure the voices of people affected by cancer are embedded in our research programs. One main area to which you can contribute is governance and decision making, such as reviewing grant applications, setting priorities and developing new funding opportunities to ensure we are funding research that is truly relevant to the communities we serve.
