BCCDC Celebrate Research Week
Project Duration: September 1, 2011 to December 31, 2016
BCCDC has held a highly successful annual research symposium involving internal staff and external guests, beginning in 2008. In 2011, the format was extended from a 2-day event to a week-long “Celebrate Research” activity. The intent was to achieve even greater staff involvement, enhanced profile for BCCDC research and to embed research as the foundation leading to improved clinical translation, care and practice. The Mediasite online broadcasting platform, combined with archiving of presentations, allows outreach to a broad audience, including regional health authority partners, academic collaborators and the lay public, as well as creating a permanent and publicly-available knowledge repository.
