CanFASD Speaker Series: The Importance of Family Engagement in FASD Research
Friday, December 2, 2016 1:30 – 2:30 PM EST: Online Presentation CanFASD Research and Policy Speaker Series
The Family Advisory Committee (FAC) of CanFASD was developed to advise the Network on research priorities for families impacted by FASD, and to assist in translating results of research to ensure they are accessible to families.
Dorothy and Ray will provide an overview of how researchers and families mutually benefit from consideration and collaboration. As an example of this type of engagement, Dorothy and Ray will describe a unique event – FASD Research: Learning Together, held in August 2016 in Regina, Saskatchewan as well as some of the outcomes and findings. This engagement session, funded by a Strategy for Patient Oriented Research (SPOR) grant, brought caregivers, individuals with FASD, researchers, and service providers together in a two-way conversation to discuss research that will make a difference.
