The CAHS Research Education Program

The CAHS Research Education Program, Department of Child Health Research, Child and Adolescent Health Service includes the Research Skills Seminar Series and a number of workshops throughout the year to facilitate research projects by busy students, and staff from any clinical background (e.g. medical, nursing, allied health, pharmacy, laboratory etc.)

The Research Skills Seminar Series offers open-access, free seminars on key topics across the whole research process. Comprehensive handouts include additional information and resources, along with other known training opportunities. Seminars are available either face-to-face or online via hosted video-conference sites or individual devices using the Scopia application, and are hosted by the WA Department of Health.

Workshops include topics such as ethics, governance, data management, REDCap use, and PCH Foundation applications, plus Pitch your Project sessions.

Research Skills Seminar Series

Our Research Skills Seminar Series provides a unique, open access and comprehensive program covering a wide range of topics across the entire research process, from conceiving an idea through to getting results into policy and practice.

Seminars are free of charge, open to all-comers, entirely optional and are seen as complementary to formal courses.

Each one hour seminar provides an overview of a topic. For those that wish to extend their knowledge further, comprehensive handouts direct participants to additional resources, and other training opportunities, such as those provided by WAHTN, and formal university courses.

The seminars were previously delivered at Princess Margaret Hospital. From May 2018, the seminars are delivered at Perth Children's Hospital and broadcast throughout Western Australia to hosted sites and individuals.

Recordings and handouts are made available via our website under Past Seminars.
