Why is meaningful community engagement in research so important… and challenging?
We invite you to a “lunch and learn” on community engagement and research. Participants at this lunch and learn will have the opportunity to ask questions about the opportunities and challenges associates with community engagement in research and to discuss best practices.
Meaningful community engagement in research is of immense value, but challenges and tensions often exist between research and meaningful engagement with community partners, key stakeholders, and the public.
BRIC NS will give a short presentation on its role in supporting community engagement in primary and integrated healthcare research, and opportunities for research funding.
About the speaker:
Nicola Boydell (University of Glasgow), visiting Nova Domus scholar, will discuss her experiences of designing and delivering a public engagement project, “Feeltrack”, with young LGBTQ people and their allies. Feeltrack was a collaborative public engagement project with researchers and song-writers, and the project engaged young people in an exciting and creative way.
Co-presented with the Healthy Populations Institute.
