Fostering Diversity and Inclusion in Health Research
Wednesday, January 25, 2023, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
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.
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
