2018 CESBC Evaluation Conference

What’s in your Evaluation Toolbox?

Evaluation practice is rapidly evolving and new tools and methods are constantly emerging. What’s a busy evaluator to do? Come learn from your peers!

The 2018 CESBC Evaluation Conference is being held in Vancouver, BC, on Friday, November 30. This conference is about opening up our evaluation toolboxes and sharing with each other what we know and what we’ve learned. The goal is for every attendee to come away from the conference with something new to apply in their work. The conference is an opportunity to strengthen skill sets, build up your network of evaluators, and make new connections. Our focus is on building CESBC’s culture as an innovative and supportive evaluation community.

CHÉOS is a sponsor of CESBC 2018. The conference will be followed by the CESBCY Annual General Meeting (4:30–5:40 PM).

Using Documentary as a Method of Knowledge Translation

Documentaries are one way to learn about things that affect our health. However, it is important to make sure that they meet the needs of different types of audiences. For example, busy parents may not have time to watch a full-length film. They may prefer other ways to learn about how to keep their children healthy. In this BC SUPPORT Unit funded study, we are identifying the best ways to share pieces of information from a documentary that provides details about the effect of germs on children. Through in-depth interviews, we will explore ‘what’ information parents and others need to make good decisions about protecting children (or not) from germs, and learn ‘how’ parents would like to get this information. The results of the study will be used to create new ways to create, assess, and disseminate documentaries that communicate health research. The findings also will help other research teams know how to share health care evidence with the public.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.
