29th April, 2024

Healthy Trajectories is a child and youth disability research hub led by Professor Christine Imms and based within the Department of Paediatrics on the Royal Children’s Hospital campus. Healthy Trajectories aims to support the development and wellbeing of children and youth with disability through research.

The Healthy Trajectories team are offering a uniquely tailored Family Engagement in Research (FER) course for Australian researchers and family engagement partners (consumers). Beginning in July 2024, the FER course brings consumers and researchers together to learn how to partner in research. It covers principles and frameworks of family engagement in research alongside discussion of the practicalities and challenges of research partnership. It is tailored for an Australian context and is delivered by experts in the field.
