As part of our Training and Capacity Development activities, the BC SUPPORT Unit organizes the following patient-oriented research (POR) related webinars:
Open to everyone, POINTERS is designed to provide information about the Unit, and about POR projects. Here patients can learn more about how to become involved in POR; researchers can learn from established POR projects; and health providers and health system decision-makers can learn from projects where these stakeholders have been involved.
Open to BC SUPPORT Unit affiliates: patient partners, regional centres, partners and Hub staff, the Unit-wide journal club meets during the academic year to review POR articles together.
Open to everyone, the Methods Clusters webinars provide updates on the clusters' activities, and provide a place for clusters' stakeholders to hold discussions.
Open to everyone, throughout the academic year other webinars are held when a need emerges.
All webinars are recorded with links available on our YouTube channel.
Webinars held by other organizations are available on our External Webinars page.
