The knowledge mobilisation symposium, being organised by the Sax Institute with the NSW Ministry of Health, will focus on evidence-support systems. The symposium will feature a keynote address and two case studies and consider the challenges of how to use evidence to address societal challenges, discuss where we are in Australia and what we might need to do differently in the future.
We are delighted that the speakers will include:
- Professor John Lavis, Co-Lead of the Evidence Commission Secretariat and Director of the McMaster Health Forum
- Conjoint Associate Professor Sarah Thackway, Executive Director of Epidemiology and Evidence at NSW Health
- Professor Jonathan Craig, Vice President and Executive Dean of the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University
Dr Jo Mitchell PSM, Senior Adviser at the Sax Institute, will chair the session.
The symposium is the second in our series on knowledge mobilisation for researchers in the Sax Institute’s Member organisations and NSW Ministry of Health and pillar staff. We intend that these symposia will identify practical challenges in knowledge mobilisation and approaches to resolving them.
