Researchers’ Café

A mix of invited speakers, both Fraser Health and Non-Fraser Health researchers, are brought together to present their work on a variety of topic areas. Topics include research that is currently being conducted at Fraser Health or elsewhere but is related to health care services delivery, completed studies, and other relevant research related information. These Cafes are held three times a year and are a great opportunity for networking between researchers and for bringing together researchers and decision-makers.

Celebrate research in Fraser Health during our 12th Annual Research Week

Theme: Patients at the Centre of Research

Discover how research is changing in Fraser Health at our 12th Annual Research Week. Our patients are becoming engaged not only as research participants but as full partners on research teams. On June 14, Keynote Day, you can meet Dr. Adeera Levin, executive director of the B.C. Renal Agency, who will talk about her pan-Canadian research on how patients are helping to find solutions to chronic kidney disease. This day also hosts a panel of patients who will talk about how to ensure patient participation benefits not only the research but the patients themselves.

Our Point of Care Research Day on June 8 features our home grown researchers who are completing research in a variety of patient care areas including psychosis, dialysis, home care, oncology, hip fracture and others. One of the highlights of the week is the “Challenges and Rewards” of Conducting Rehabilitation Research with a wonderful line up of Fraser Health and academic researchers which is held on June 15. Our Fraser Health Library Services will host their Paging Dr. Google workshop that focuses on teaching patients to get the right information online. Lastly, our Clinical Trials Research Management Symposium on June 16 is geared towards the professional development of research coordinators conducting clinical trials.

You will find that this week offers something for everyone. Research Week is a wonderful opportunity to meet new colleagues whose interests may align with yours and to be stimulated by the very creative process of conducting research.

Come and be inspired and learn how you too can become involved in research that benefits Fraser Health patients, clients, and residents.
