GP Research: what’s it all about?
Webinar 27 Oct, 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM (AEDT)
General practice research helps GPs provide the best and most up-to-date care for their patients. There are many ways that GPs can be involved in research, and those that are involved find it challenging and rewarding.
Join us for a Q&A style digital panel discussion showcasing GP research. Topics will include why research is relevant to clinical practice, what GP researchers do, what they enjoy about it, and how you can get involved.
Panel members will include a “grassroots” GP who participate in research carried out in their practice, an academic registrar, 2 early career researchers, and a Professor/Coordinator of a practice based research network.Learning outcomes
