The next session of QUEST-SJ (Qualitative Health Research Collaborative) will be on Tuesday, June 12, from 3 to 4:30 in NBCC Building Room 2217 (100 Tucker Park Rd.)

The agenda for this session will include:

Hot Topic: Knowledge Translation Strategies for Qualitative Research   
Planning for dissemination of study findings is an important aspect of developing a research proposal; it is typically a requirement for both funding and ethics applications.  Qualitative study designs can lend themselves to innovative and creative knowledge translation strategies.  Matthew Douglas and Heidi Van Wart from UNB’s Office of Research Services will lead a discussion on knowledge translation for qualitative research.    

Methodological Focus of the Month: Study Design Considerations for Research with Indigenous and First Nations People  
There is a growing interest and need for ethically-sound research with Indigenous communities in what is now known to be Canada. Given historical and contemporary manifestations of colonialism, it is essential to engage in relational ethical frameworks and embed cultural safety in all aspects of the research process. Amanda Reid Rogers will share her experience and knowledge of community-based and decolonizing methodological approaches, highlighting the necessity of placing engagement of Indigenous peoples at the forefront of research projects.
