Join us for the Research in Emergency Care, Avon Collaborative Hub (REACH) annual showcase
22 September 2022
Online: 17 October 2022, 1:30-4:30pm
REACH is a collaborative research hub in Bristol that aims to improve the delivery of urgent and emergency care. This year our showcase event will focus on the dissemination of research findings.
Speakers from REACH will be joined by colleagues from other leading UK academic research units in Urgent and Emergency Care to present their approaches to engagement and impact.
Following presentations, we will host a short, facilitated discussion with attendees to discuss how REACH can improve in these areas.
The event is open to anyone interested in REACH’s work and those who want to contribute to improving the way that research findings can make a difference in clinical practice.
Register now on Eventbrite.
