Queen’s School of Rehabilitation Therapy will host Rehabilitation Research Colloquium May 23-24th
On behalf of the planning committee, we are excited to announce that the School of Rehabilitation Therapy will host the 21st Annual Rehabilitation Research Colloquium. The theme for this year’s Colloquium is ‘Rehabilitation Along the Continuum: Re-Thinking the Possibilities for Rehabilitation Science.’
The colloquium has expanded this year and will span across two days to accommodate for the increased interest. There will be two keynote speakers; Dr. Jay Shaw, a scientist at Women’s College Research Institute, and Dr. Linna Tam-Seto, post-doctoral research fellow in Health Services and Policy Research at Queen’s. Dr. Shaw’s talk will focus on ‘The value of rehabilitation to health innovation: critical perspectives on the future of care’ while Dr. Tam-Seto will present on ‘From research to practice: applying rehabilitation science to the health and well-being of military members, veterans, and their families.’
As a student run conference, presentations will also be delivered by graduate students from across Ontario, including those from Queen’s University, McMaster University, and Western University. A variety of topics will be presented, highlighting the breadth and diversity of research being conducted by graduate students in the field of rehabilitation science. Topics that will be presented range across the lifespan, vary with respect to rehabilitation setting, and include a variety of methodological approaches.
This year’s colloquium is shaping up to be a fantastic day that will bring rehabilitation research trainees together to learn and engage as part of a larger community. Stay up-to-date on the Colloquium by following @RRColloquium19 on Twitter and using the hashtag #RehabResearch2019.
