Recruiting and hiring peer researchers—individuals with direct experience of a phenomenon under investigation—is widely acknowledged as a best practice in community-based health research. However, there is a notable gap in the existing research literature when it comes to understanding the experiences of peer researchers themselves.

In this webinar, you will hear insights from a participatory, qualitative research project concentrating on four intersecting communities often engaged in peer research:

  • Mental health service user communities
  • Communities of people who use drugs
  • Trans and non-binary communities
  • Racialized communities

Our discussion will underscore shared experiences across these communities, such as exposure to intersecting systemic oppressions. Drawing upon the project’s findings, the researchers advocate for a more reflexive and critically informed approach to applying peer research methodologies, particularly for health researchers involved in collaborative projects with service user communities.
