2014 – 2nd Graduate Research Seminar Series – Friday, 28 March 2014

The School of Translational Health Science, The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), would like to extend an invitation to the 2nd GRADUATE RESEARCH SEMINAR for 2014 – Friday, 28 March, to be held in the JBI Conference Room, Level 1, 115 Grenfell Street, Adelaide.

Join the audience to hear a presentation from Dr John Walsh and Dr Nayia Cominos, Discipline of Linguistics, The University of Adelaide, speaking on topic: “A multidisciplinary approach to clinical handover in mental health: what might linguistics contribute?”

The presentation will discuss a current national scheme funded by an ARC Linkage grant ‘The ECCHo Project’, a research study into effective communication in clinical handover.

The ECCHo project is a three-year national research study that started in 2011. The project’s full title is Effective clinical handover communication: improving patient safety, experiences and outcomes. It involves a multidisciplinary group of researchers from universities and health departments in six states. The research team is working with clinicians in hospitals in NSW, ACT, WA and SA to observe, describe, and analyse how clinicians in different hospital settings undertake clinical handover. The focus in SA is clinical handover in mental health, and we have been working with three mental health teams in one of the large metropolitan general hospitals.

The presentation will commence from 3:30pm. Prior to the presentation there will be complimentary CHEESE AND WINE served from 3:10pm. All staff and students are encouraged to attend and enjoy our 2nd presentation for the year.

Translational Science Workshop 2

Translational Science Workshop 2
Learning and Teaching Event

Friday, 21 March 2014
________________________________________

‘With the Benefit of hindsight…what should each Health Sciences student know about Translational Science
before they graduate?’
________________________________________
How do we better incorporate Translational Science into the Learning and Teaching we already do?
How can we make Translational Science more ‘student friendly’?
Join us for our second event in a series of three as we work towards defining these and other questions so that we are all better positioned to identify the people with whom we can interact to get Translational Science (TS) happening – this time in the Learning and Teaching space.

With four guest speakers and two Learning and Teaching experts to help guide us through the workshop, we hope this session will be a way of raising awareness across the whole faculty about Translational Science and for participants to come away knowing more about the following things:

 What is Translational Science and how does the Faculty of Health Sciences define it
 How the work of the Translational Science Pillar complements the work of other Schools and Institutes within the faculty
 Identify what this means for your school and how it applies to learning and teaching
 Where you fit in the Translational Science process
 How we can create a sense of collective interest and shared responsibility around this topic

When
Friday, 21 March 2014
1.45pm for a 2pm start – 5pm

This event will conclude with networking and cocktail hour.

1st GRADUATE RESEARCH SEMINAR FOR 2014 – Friday, 28 February 2014

The School of Translational Health Science, The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), would like to extend an invitation to the first GRADUATE RESEARCH SEMINAR for 2014 – Friday, 28 February, to be held in the JBI Conference Room, Level 1, 115 Grenfell Street, Adelaide.

Join the audience to hear a presentation from Professor Julie Owens. Professor Owens is Head of the School of Paediatrics and Reproductive Health (SPRH) and Associate Dean Research, Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS), University of Adelaide, Director of the Research Centre for the Early Origins of Health and Disease in the Robinson Institute and a member of the Foundation Board of Advisors, National Childhood Obesity Foundation (NCOF) USA.

Professor Owens will present on Topic: “Parental obesity and health of offspring: a novel role for the father?”. The father is known to influence health of his offspring through social and genetic pathways. Obesity is now pandemic and paternal obesity is a significant contributor as well as consequence. Recently a third and novel pathway has emerged whereby this may occur –that of developmental programming. This opens up new opportunities to address obesity and its consequences and reinforces the role of the father.

The presentations will commence from 3:30pm. Prior to the presentations there will be complimentary CHEESE AND WINE served from 3:10pm. All staff and students are encouraged to attend and enjoy this first presentation for the year.

Retirement of Head of School, Professor Alan Pearson AM

The staff at JBI take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Professor Alan Pearson AM, founder and Executive Director of the Joanna Briggs Institute and Head of the School of Translational Health Science, who retired at the end of 2013. It has been a great privilege to work with him and we wish Professor Pearson all the very best in his ‘semi-retirement’. Professor Pearson will still be involved with supervision of HDR students, and will be acting as the Director of the new Centre for Research Excellence. Until the appointment of his replacement, Associate Professor Zoe Jordan will be Acting Head of School.

HDR Student Rep Handbook

Student_Rep_Handbook-2014

Recognising that many HDR students have times constraints due to career and study
workloads, building the student body into a strong, active collegial group – and
encouraging their participation in appropriate decision making processes of the School –
is particularly challenging. This document – designed to provide a framework
representation for and to promote collegiality among the student body – has been
developed by Associate Professor Craig Lockwood (Postgraduate Coordinator) and the
current student representatives, Stephen Richards and Stephanie Newell, and the
appointed proxy representative Deborah Chen in consultation with Professor Alan
Pearson AM (Former Head of School).
