Groundbreaking abstracts spotlight patient perspectives
“There is a whole world of patient perspectives that are very relevant to the care we are providing that are being inadequately captured through traditional research mechanisms. In my field, gender-affirming care, there are a number of power dynamics and historical norms that have potentially harmed patients. This kind of patient-perspective research, conducted by and presented by patients, is an opportunity to deconstruct and reconfigure our understanding and approaches to improve clinical and quality of life outcomes.” - Geolani Dy
