1 Last Call! Annual Working Meeting 2016
As previously announced, the next Annual Working Meeting of the ICPHR will take place in Malmö, Sweden from 9am, Thursday, 25 August to 2pm, Saturday, 27 August 2016. Registration ends on May 2nd! The meeting is a place where we can work on joint projects and learn more about what we are doing in our home countries. All registrants will receive a detailed program and a list of recommended hotels, both of which are also posted on the website. A pre-conference will be taking place in Göteborg on 24 August where work being conducted in Sweden will be presented and international speakers will address current issues in participatory health research. Please go to the site for more information.
2 ICPHR Kids in Action Initiative
Children are an often overlooked group when it comes to participatory research projects. We have an exciting new opportunity for those who are interested in conducting Participatory Health Research (PHR) research with children – the Kids in Action multi-country 3 year collaborative initiative. The initiative, which will be launched at the Annual Working Meeting in Malmö, is being coordinated by Prof. Lisa Gibbs, Director of the Jack Brockhoff Child Health and Wellbeing Program and Unit Head of the Evidence and Child Health Unit in the Centre for Health Equity, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health at the University of Melbourne (Australia). Information will be coming soon on our website.
3 Ethics in Participatory Health Research: Request for Case Examples and Case Studies
We continue to collect case examples for a broader discussion on ethics in Participatory Health Research. These examples will illustrate the issues raised in our position paper on ethics, available on the website. For more information about the case examples and case studies, click here. Feel free to submit your case studies in languages other than English. We will work with our language coordinators to find ways to incorporate these studies into the sites which are currently being developed in other languages. We look forward to hearing from you!
