The SCPOR Patient-Oriented Research Level of Engagement Tool measures the degree to which a project meets the definition of patient-oriented
research described by the CIHR Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR). The tool utilizes five criteria which have been adopted from SPOR
published documents. These criteria are:
- patients are partners,
- patient identified priorities,
- outcomes important to patients,
- team is multidisciplinary,
- and aims to integrate knowledge into practice.
The rubric breaks each of these five criteria into a marking scale of 1-5 and give descriptions for each score, allowing the researcher (or grant reviewer) to assess the level of patient-orientated research described in the grant.
