Connecting research with the real-world: Consumer engagement and co-design.
Thursday 7th March 2024, 6pm - 7pm AEDT, 8pm - 9pm NZST
This webinar will be hosted by the AAAPC ECR Subcommittee and presented by Associate Professor Ayton, who will take us through her experience with consumer engagement and co-design in health services research.
We will discuss the importance of using research methods that are applicable to what’s really happening ‘on the ground’ and what this might look like for primary care researchers. Tips and recommendations for conducting consumer-led research will also be provided.
This is a free event, open to AAAPC members and non-members.
