What Is Research Rounds?
Each month, a researcher (who is often a clinician as well) from the Health Centre will present their research. This discussion will be appropriate to an audience with a wide range of backgrounds.
Who Can Attend?
Anyone! We want everyone, both within and outside the health centre, to attend. Feel free to drop in and grab some coffee and a morning snack while you learn something new! Free and open to the Public.
Why Should You Come?
Have you ever wondered how decisions get made in the health system? How doctors, nurses, or psychologists develop the best plan of care? Patient care, and the research that improves care, is everyone’s business. These quick 45-minute conversations allow researchers to give an overview of the evidence in their field, to discuss research that is happening right now in a way that makes sense to everyone This is a great opportunity to learn about local research, and to learn more about a topic that may directly relate to your health.
