Our workshop leaders bring extensive experience in working with students, young researchers and practicing clinicians in finding, assessing and building information, in working with our teams and communities towards creating a more client centred care system.

Dietitians and clients must participate in the process (of Knowledge Translation) and … their experiential knowledge matters if the evidence generated is to be relevant to real-world problems.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Cornelissen, E. et al. In Practice (Winter 2011)

This year, participants will select two of three workshops.

* Librarians Peggy Pritchard and research data management specialist, Dr Michele Edward will lead a hands-on workshop in the computer lab on the latest innovations of data search and evidence based inquiry. This workshop will be repeated to allow everyone a place to participate.

* Dr Paula Brauer will lead participants, using the small group learning format, to identify and focus a research question, and proceed to plan the research project that is achievable in our Primary Health Care settings.

* Dr Anne Bergen and Katie Haneke will introduce us to the spectrum of interventions used to capture community trends and engage community stakeholders in research and  quality work.

The afternoon will finish of with a networking event designed to get you mingling and getting to better know other RDs in FHTs and CHCs, and hear about their practice successes and challenges.
