Reciprocity: A Framework for Families and Researchers to Move on a Two-Way Street

This webinar is now over, but if you missed it, please feel free to watch the recording below.

As part of our 2019 Summer Learning Series, CHILD-BRIGHT is hosting free webinars, open to all interested in delving deeper into topics related to Patient-Oriented Research (POR).


Join us for the third of these sessions:

When: Wednesday, July 17, 2019
Time: 9:00-10:00 a.m. PST / Noon-1:00 p.m. EST

The key to successful ‘reciprocity’ or ‘the practice of exchanging things with others for mutual benefit in an applied research setting’ is garnering a clear understanding of what different ‘stakeholders’ or partners are hoping to obtain from the exchange.  When these aims and differing perspectives are clearly understood by all partners, this allows for the development of an authentic partnership.  This session will focus on parent/researcher reciprocity within an applied research setting.  

The objectives of this session are the following:

  • A discussion of common aims/wishes/motivators for parent stakeholders to engage with research stakeholders in applied research (Brenda Agnew)

  • A discussion of common aims/wishes/motivators for researchers to engage with parent stakeholders in applied research (Darcy Fehlings)

  • The presentation of a ‘framework’ to promote an authentic partnership between parents and researchers to maximize ‘reciprocity’ and mutual benefit (Heather Shearer)

  • To open up a dialogue with participants in the session around perceived barriers and facilitators of successful partnering between parents and researchers.
