TCRN Consumer Engagement Workshop at UTS
The TCRN is holding a Consumer Engagement Workshop for your research funding application at UTS. The TCRN’s consumer engagement workshop is one of the most anticipated and successful research support services provided by the TCRN.
The E-Cancer Shared Care Plan is a project led by researchers in the Continuum of Care flagship at the TCRN. Currently being piloted at Sydney’s St George Hospital, the initiative will test the acceptability and utility of sharing the care of long-term cancer survivors between specialist cancer services and general practitioners.
In this monthly article the TCRN Operations & Projects team use on-line tools to identify publications attributed to TCRN members. We are using Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature as our primary source.
