Engage with Impact Toolkit
Evaluating the impact of patient, family and caregiver engagement in health systems
The Engage with Impact Toolkit was designed to help organizations evaluate the impact of their patient, family and caregiver engagement programs and activities. On this site you will learn more about what the Engage with Impact Toolkit is and how it can be used.
The Toolkit has been developed for a wide range of users. This includes Ontario Health Teams, health and health care service organizations, and government agencies. As key partners in patient engagement, we also expect patient, family and caregiver partners, and their organizations and networks, to be key users of this resource.
We plan to update and tailor the Toolkit as we gather additional feedback, so we encourage you to check this website frequently. We also welcome your feedback on the Engage with Impact Toolkit and how it is being used. Please feel free to contact us.
Who developed this tool?
The Engage with Impact Toolkit was developed by a Working Group of patient, family and caregiver partners, health system researchers, engagement leads and government personnel. The Working Group was supported by the Public and Patient Engagement Collaborative at McMaster University, led by Dr. Julia Abelson.
Welcome from the Working Group
The Engage with Impact Toolkit is dedicated to working group members Anya Humphrey and Randy Filinski, who were both strong advocates for the importance of patient, family and caregiver engagement and of this work.
