Researcher & Consumer Workshop; 10 February 2015

  • Researcher and Consumer Workshop; Part 2

The TCRN are holding two half-day workshops for TCRN researchers who are interested in engaging with consumers in preparation for developing grant proposals. The first workshop took place 12 November 2014 and the second is to take place 10 February 2015.

A Consumer Researcher workshop Part 2  with the Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) has been scheduled as a follow-up session after the first workshop in November.  Participants from the first session will be given preference.  Each researcher meets individually with the CAC for 15 minutes to discuss the project and any grant applications.

Part 2 of the workshop will encourage more of a conversation between each researcher and the consumers and will allow each researcher to demonstrate how they have been able to incorporate any feedback they received from session 1.

What to prepare for the Workshop part 2:

If your project has remained essentially unchanged from that presented in Session 1, you do not need to provide anything further as we will re-issue the lay summary you provided for Session 1 to the CAC along with your presentation slides.  However, If your project has changed substantially we will require a new lay summary and either a presentation or background document that can provide further detail to the CAC.

Part 1

Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Initial contact: “Involving consumers in research: Gaining meaningful feedback from consumers”.

Part 2

Grant Review: a workshop where the CAC can provide specific feedback to researchers regarding the consumer-related sections of grant applications.
