Comments Off on Free webinar – Discussion on the Nursing Perspective: Spotlight on the International Leadership Collaborative

In early October, the Adelaide Nursing School hosted our annual 2.5 day Research Conversazione. The Research Conversazione showcases current research activities of the School’s Higher Degree by Research students and researchers, and promotes academic engagement and scholarly networking between the School, its collaborators and stakeholders.

The Research Conversazione opened on October 5th with three workshops on: novel types of systematic reviews (led by Dr Rick Wiechula), Indigenous health research methodology (led by Dr Janet Kelly and Dr Andrea Mckivett) and knowledge translation (led by Prof Gill Harvey).

The more formal presentation sessions on day 2 were preceded by an enlightening armchair discussion between Dr Rick Wiechula and Emeritus Professor Alan Pearson (AM) (pictured). The discussion ranged from Professor Pearson’s early days as a nurse researcher, joint clinical-academic roles at Deakin University, to setting up the School of Nursing in 1995 and the Joanna Briggs Institute in 1996, and life since settling down into retirement. Professor Pearson spoke eloquently about student-led inquiry and the value of events like the Research Conversazione to foster an environment that supports student development. His continued contribution to the School is gratefully acknowledged.
