2019 Summer Learning Series: Enhancing Participation in Research

  • This event has passed.

June 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

As part of our 2019 Summer Learning Series, CHILD-BRIGHT is hosting free webinars, open to all interested in delving deeper into topics related to Patient-Oriented Research (POR).

Join us for the second of these sessions:

When: Thursday, June 27, 2019
Time: 9:00-10:00 a.m. PST / Noon-1:00 p.m. EST

Successfully implemented research is completely contingent on recruitment of ample participants that fit inclusion criteria. Donna Thomson, parent and author and Dr. Lach, Associate Professor at McGill University, will discuss challenges associated with recruiting participants from parent and researcher perspectives, and they will identify strategies that increase likelihood of participation. Understanding the dialectic between parent motivation for participation in research and what researchers need for a successful study will shed light on pragmatic approaches that complement these perspectives.

Facilitators: Donna Thomson & Lucyna Lach

Where those of us in the room may have debated policy or wording, patient voices made sure patients were top of mind. And as a result, significant improvements were made to simplify something that was otherwise complex. Patient voices at the table bring us back to reality in terms of what we are trying to achieve.
