"Engaging health care researchers with the community and industry" is a two-day event for HDR students from all faculties to gain insights into various pathways to connect researchers with the community and industry, and master specific skills to involve more health care consumers in their research project. Experts in the field will be sharing their pearls of wisdoms from their extensive careers and experiences.

The Day 1 workshops will provide researchers with strategies to: translate research findings into clinical practice, work with partner organisations, and involve consumers in research. The Day 2 workshops will help researchers engage with: health policy development, medical product development, and the community. Join us to further improve your research skills and communication alibilities!
