The Inaugural “CJSLPA Day”: Priority Research Topics and Fostering Clinical Research Partnerships
The language used in the descriptions reflects the language of the sessions.
The Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (CJSLPA) is an open-sourced, peer-reviewed, online journal of clinical practice for audiologists, speech-language pathologists and researchers. CJSLPA seeks to advance basic and applied science in social communication, hearing, balance and vestibular function, speech, language, and feeding/swallowing in all areas important to Canadian speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) and audiologists. Participation of practicing clinicians, as both consumers and contributors to research, is vital to the continuing success of the journal and advancement of the field.
In this inaugural “CJSLPA Day”, CJSLPA will highlight the importance of collaborative researcher-S-LP partnerships in the delivery of relevant and high-quality, clinical research. Six CJSLPA content editors will emphasize key areas of research priority in their respective domains and describe the important role clinicians can play in the research and publication process. Presentations will be in both English and French, which reflects the important role the Journal plays in each of the languages of the Association.
