Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research
We’re delighted to announce two unique opportunities in early March to hear about and participate in the work of the SQUIRE group in improving the reporting of health systems improvement research.
Join an interprofessional group of attendees from around the world at the SQUIRE European Conference on Writing about Healthcare Improvement
This will be a truly a hands-on opportunity for attendees to bring a project, learn about SQUIRE, and then use SQUIRE to write portions of a manuscript. It will be of interest to students, clinicians, researchers and others who want to learn what’s new, and apply it to their own work. Enjoy talks, expert panel discussions, manuscript writing sessions, and networking at the University of Leicester, UK 7-8 March 2017.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of The Health Foundation, registration to the main conference is free of charge.
If you can’t make it to the Leicester workshop, you will have another chance to catch the SQUIRE Group in Oxford. They will be giving a seminar at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Oxford University, 1-2pm on 9 March. Entry is free, but please book via Eventbrite
Speakers Louise Davies and Greg Ogrinc, from the Dartmouth Institute in New Hampshire USA and Hilary Mosher, from the University of Iowa will describe the journey of updating the SQUIRE reporting guideline and how it helps you write clearly about three key components of your research
They will provide examples from the literature to demonstrate how these components work together in a completed manuscript.
