July 2014

  • First International Health Services Research: Evidence-based practice conference, taking place at King's College, London, UK from 1–3 July 2014.

    King's College, London, UK from 1–3 July 2014.


    As health services research is a multidisciplinary field, this meeting will have a broad scope and address topics from many viewpoints, ranging from international health policy to local health care systems. With health policies often dictated by politicians, integrating evidence into health service practice remains challenging. Changes to health services and health policies are all too often implemented without reference to available research evidence. This conference considers the latest health services research findings, and how the evidence should and can be translated into practice. Each session will be led by a distinguished leader in the field, and will include both invited speakers and a number of talks by participants selected from the submitted abstracts.

  • 2014 Primary Health Care Research Conference

    National Convention Centre, Canberra, 23-25 July 2014


    Integrating knowledge exchange to improve primary health care outcomes

    This Conference seeks to foster a culture in which knowledge exchange becomes automatic, a part of core business for everyone who wants to contribute to the improvement of primary health care outcomes. The value of any evidence is enhanced when the key stakeholders work together with a common purpose that encourages them to capitalise, from the outset, on their different perspectives, expertise and skills. Such a focus on partnerships and co-creation of knowledge can become a part of ‘the way we do things here’.

August 2014

  • Introduction to Research Methods


    Friday 8 August 08:30-17:00 at The Alfred Centre, 99 Commercial Road, Melbourne


    This one day introductory course will explore the fundamentals of undertaking research in a clinical environment.

The course is designed for health professionals who hold a healthcare related undergraduate qualification but assumes no further prior knowledge or any research experience.
    Key learning areas:
    - Development of answerable research questions
    - Literature searching
    - Displaying and summarising research data
