Consumer and Community Involvement

Consumer and Community Involvement (CCI)

The CRE WHiRL is strongly committed to Consumer and Community Involvement (CCI). Community and consumer members, by bringing their lived experience, provide valuable insights to improve the quality of research and increase the relevance of research to a broader audience. We are committed to building research literacy and the capacity of the consumer sector to engage in developing research questions, research design, conducting research, research translation and dissemination. We support and encourage CCI across all of our programs.
