What is the difference between patient engagement and patient centeredness?

Patient-centered research seeks to answer questions that matter to patients and/or their caregivers. Additionally, patient-centered research will measure outcomes that are important to patients and/or their caregivers. Patient and stakeholder engagement, on the other hand, refers to the integration of patients and other stakeholders in the development of the research plan and in key elements of the proposed project.
