Join us for a workshop focused on fostering diversity and inclusion in health research. Current patient engagement practices result in a narrow pool of perspectives being reflected in patient-oriented research. This session will discuss a project funded by the BC SUPPORT Unit to develop educational modules to support the inclusion of more diverse people in health research, including d/Deaf, disabled, rural and remote, LGBTQ2S+, immigrant, racialized, refugee and ethnocultural communities. Speakers will also provide an overview of the Tapestry Tool: an open-source online learning platform that allows users, authors, viewers, students and instructors to collaborate in the development of content.
This workshop is part of our VCHRI Research Training Series. This series is designed to support the acquisition of advanced skills, techniques and knowledge and lead to enhanced practices in the conduct of research.
In this workshop you will learn:
- Why diversity and inclusion in health research matter
- What the Tapestry Tool is
- Pragmatic strategies to support the inclusion of more diverse people in health research
