Whether you’re living with heart failure, caring for someone who is, or are a healthcare ally – this day is for you.
Meaningful, impactful cardiovascular research must be grounded in the needs and priorities of patients, caregivers, and family members (People With Lived Experience, or PWLE). The voices of PWLE must be present as research is conceptualized, funded, executed and evaluated. An engaged and “partner-ready” community of PWLE partners who can be active and engaged members of research initiatives is needed to maximize the impact of research, meet the needs of research funders and assure the centrality of PWLE perspectives.
This free, day-long workshop is designed to train PWLE to be active and engaged members of research teams and to begin to build a community across Canada.
After a successful world premiere on March 26, 2023, at the VIFF Centre Theatre in Vancouver, we are pleased to present the documentary feature My Broken Heart, streaming free in high definition on our YouTube channel.
Exploring the journey from end-stage heart failure, LVAD, heart transplantation, and organ rejection, My Broken Heart is an unflinching look at the unknown, unexpected, and sometimes dire consequences of heart transplantation.
Producer/Director: Nick Zap
Cast: Jillianne Code, Cody Halfpenny, Mark R. Wilson
