The Covid-Focused Virtual Patient Engagement Studio (CoVIP Studio) was created in conjunction with a PCORI Engagement Award. The CoVIP Studio involves patients (with lived experience of Long COVID), caregivers, clinicians, and researchers who engage collaboratively to co-develop, review, and disseminate patient-centered research on COVID-19 and its long-term effects in a more patient-centered manner.
We recruited a diverse, nationwide network of stakeholders including patient experts with lived experiences & clinicians/ researchers with expertise in COVID-19/ Long COVID. These stakeholders have been trained to increase their abilities to be meaningful partners throughout the research process.
Our CoVIP Patient Experts have now reviewed 20 research projects. As we celebrate the successes and reflect upon opportunities for future growth, check back on this page for the most up to date information about this work and its influence on research all over the country.
