Presentation at the 11th Advances in Qualitative Methods Conference to explore the inner workings of Network Action Teams

Nancy Poole and Dorothy Badry will be presenting at the 11th Advances in Qualitative Methods Conference in Vancouver, BC  tomorrow afternoon on the development and evolution of the CanFASD Northwest Research Network Action Team (NAT) on FASD Prevention from a Women’s Determinants of Health Perspective.

The NAT began in 2006 as a way of bringing together individuals across provincial and territorial boundaries to develop a cooperative and collaborative research agenda related to the intricacies of the areas of alcohol/substance use and pregnancy. This virtual community has developed over time and this presentation will explore this innovative way of working. The presentation is entitled “The CanFASD Northwest Research Network Action Team on Women’s Health: A Hub for Qualitative Research Empowering Women.”

Interesting how a group which includes a number of researchers has become the object of research itself, isn’t it?
