We are the proud Platinum sponsors of the Bold ideas, better solutions symposium being held in November by The Hopkins Centre. Bold ideas, better solutions 2018 will highlight the valuable contributions of collaborative research through ‘enhancing the experience of rehabilitation’ as the theme of the event. This will provide the opportunity to showcase, connect and share new ideas, experiences and enable innovative solutions that enhance the health and well-being of people with long-term and complex rehabilitation needs, and their support networks.
The NIISQ Photographic exhibition will also feature at the symposium.
The Hopkins Centre are now inviting clinicians, researchers, industry partners, people with disability and lived rehabilitation experiences to submit an abstract to be considered for symposium.
Bold ideas, better solutions 2018 will present an interdisciplinary program of oral and poster presentations, highlighting the valuable contributions of collaborative research towards enhancing the experience of rehabilitation through a number of subthemes:
- Evaluating and translating therapeutic practices and interventions
- Developing and supporting front-line capacity
- Optimising service systems and transitions
- Enhancing service user experiences and engagement
- Promoting positive environments
A judges’ choice and people’s choice award will be awarded to the best oral presentations and will be announced during closing remarks at Bold ideas, better solutions 2018.
The annual Hopkins Centre Translational Research Award will also be announced during event closing remarks and acknowledges the value of collaboration and productive interdisciplinary research links between practice, academia and industry, and the importance of research having translational potential. This Award recognises research and evaluation projects that demonstrate translational impact or have potential to translate into better practices, health service delivery, and ultimately, contribute to improving the wellbeing of people with complex health needs or lifelong disabling conditions.
