Primary Health Care Research Day 2018

When: June 4, 2018

Where:  Double Tree by Hilton, 101 Wyse Road, Dartmouth, NS

Who: Patients and community members, students, residents, faculty, researchers, health care providers, policy and decision makers, and the primary health care research community.

Why: To highlight primary health care research being conducted in the province, while providing a forum to meet, share work, make connections, and build relationships.

Theme: Patient Engagement in Primary Health Care Research

The theme of this year’s Primary Health Care Research Day is “Patient Engagement in Primary Health Care Research”. The aim is to highlight the patient engagement work that is happening throughout Nova Scotia and to learn from local and international experts.

Keynote speakers, Maret Felzien and Dr. Jack Westfall, with a larger team of patients and citizens, researchers, clinicians, and decision-makers, developed and deliver the Patient and Clinical Engagement (PaCE) project, which is focused on multimodal training in primary healthcare research for patient and clinician dyads; they are immersed in the business of communicating to lay audiences about research. Further, their work in the High Plains Research Network engages with hundreds of local citizens and patients to conduct locally relevant primary healthcare research.
