Research for Practice: Embracing the Power of Partnership

The language used in the descriptions reflects the language of the sessions.

Research-practice partnerships have been proposed to facilitate incorporating research evidence into clinical practice. Members of PRECISe Western, a group of researchers who conduct practice-based research in speech-language pathology, will lead this seminar. Through case discussion, we will describe the various paths by which partnerships are formed, the potential roles that speech-language pathologists may fill within these partnerships and the varied clinical problems that a practice-based research approach can address. By attending this mini-seminar, speech-language pathologists will develop an awareness of research-practice partnerships, and the ways in which their clinical expertise can transform the research evidence within the profession.
