Event description

Description

Carefully planned and designed research studies can be undone by a myriad of problems when collecting data in community, clinical and public settings. Rarely does data collection happen as smoothly as depicted in proposals, textbooks and university courses. Problems can occur because new researchers are trained to address the general issues arising during data collection and not the specific realities of conducting research in diverse community/health care settings, and particularly with vulnerable populations.

In response, the Canadian Association for HIV Research (CAHR), the Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH) and the Universities without Walls (UWW) will hold their fourth Data Collection Skill Development Workshop with the aims of:

  • Assisting new HIV/HCV researchers to identify, anticipate and plan for the challenges they may experience collecting data for their masters, doctoral and/or post-doctoral projects and/or community-based research projects
  • Using real and simulated case examples to explore options for responding to complex methodological and ethical challenges experienced while conducting research
  • Providing an opportunity for each attendee to discuss their own research project that is in the planning stage with experienced researchers
  • Promoting ethical and methodological reflection, and strategies to mitigate harm to communities and their ecology, throughout the stages of data collection and management.

Ultimately, this workshop will assist new HIV/HCV researchers to develop more carefully designed, rigorous and robust research protocols, as well as graduate student research, fellowship and grant applications.

The organizers thank the CIHR for their partial support of this meeting.
