The Australasian Hepatology Association is embarking on an exciting new venture to equip Members with the skills to conduct their own ground breaking research.
Ten webinars will be held over the course of this year, with lectures by academic nurses providing information about the various facets of research. AHA Members will learn key competencies to enable them to direct their research.
These lectures will coincide and progress with the different stages of two current research projects being conducted by AHA Members:
- AbbVie has funded a multi-centred study to explore medication adherence in patients with hepatitis B, C or cirrhosis.
- A Gilead research fellowship is currently allowing the AHA to investigate the attitudes of treating clinicians (nurses and medical practitioners) in providing DAA treatment for hepatitis C patients who inject drugs.
Dr Janice Gullick presented the first lectures in the webinar series on the topics of literature searching and writing research protocols, and both lectures have been extremely well received by AHA Members. Janice is the Director of Postgraduate Advanced Studies and Coordinator of the Master of Intensive Care and Master of Emergency Nursing programs at the Sydney Nursing School.
To join the live webinars, or for more information, please contact AHA Research Officer Dr Sumudu Narayana by email or on 0457 627 366.
