Research Prioritization by Affected Communities (RPAC) Protocol 

RPAC Purpose:

Involvement of patients and the public is now recognized to be essential for the good conduct of research. The goal of Research Prioritization by Affected Communities (RPAC) in the context of  RHE&BJ CORE is to directly involve communities in identifying, ranking and prioritizing their unanswered questions about COVID-19 in the context of pregnancy during the pandemic.

How the RPAC Method Works:

Approved RPAC Protocol for Online

Our researchers successfully transitioned RPAC into an online process by following this approved protocol. Please note this protocol can be adapted to you/your organization's specific need. 

We also have a social media tool kit here!
