Call for presenters!
BRIC NS is excited to announce the Primary Health Care Learning Series. The seminar series is intended to provide the primary and integrated health care community the opportunity to present completed or in-progress research and quality assurance projects. It is open to presenters from any background, including clinicians, researchers, patient partners, and decision/policy makers.
Each seminar will consist of two 20-minute presentations, with a question period at the end. The series will run every other month, from October 2020 to August 2021. Presentations may be grouped thematically; if you would like to present during the same session as someone else indicate this when notifying BRIC NS of your interest. All seminars will be virtual.
If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a short description of your topic, its relevance to primary health care, and (if applicable) how patient engagement was included in the work.
Please note the tentative dates for these presentations. Information about individual presentations will be sent when presenters are confirmed. All presentations are scheduled for 12:30-1:45 AT
