BC SUPPORT Unit Journal Club

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. 

As part of our Training and Capacity Development activities, the BC SUPPORT Unit is pleased to offer the Unit-wide Journal Club webinar series, open to BC SUPPORT Unit affiliates: patient partners, regional centres, partners and Hub staff. 

The focus of the journal articles is patient-oriented research (all articles are open access so no academic library affiliation is required).

Purpose: The purpose of the journal club is to (a) promote a better understanding of the patient-oriented research process; and, (b) improve your ability to critically appraise research.

Logistics: The club meets via webinar and uses an electronic community of practice (eCoP) for storing documents and for providing an online discussion forum. Members of the club need to apply for a website account (see the link in the top right hand of the website home page) and contact us to be added to this eCoP.

The series includes three webinars over the academic year; you can attend one or all. Each webinar is led by a different volunteer. Participation in the journal club means that you read an article decided on by the leader of that month's session, and come prepared to discuss it. The team eCoP includes a number of resources to help you prepare for these discussion, including:
