2016 Showcase Event
On Thursday 29 September RDNS Institute held an inaugural research Showcase Event and launch of the Institute Report 2016. The event ran sessions on mental health, promoting inclusive healthcare, medicines care, health economics of community health services, enabling choices to improve the wellbeing of people with dementia and supporting older people to age well. Facilitated by Institute staff alongside guest presenters and panelists, the sessions drew together RDNS staff, stakeholders and experts from some of our key collaborators.
An afternoon question and answer session provided a forum for discussion to find ways for researchers, consumers, providers and industry to work together to achieve the desired goal of better healthcare. The session sparked an interesting discussion with topics covering engaging industry in research, how to facilitate relationships with consumers and working within a team based approach to care.
