Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research

Protocol Development Workshop Bond University Australia


Protocol Development Workshop

Our colleagues at Australasian EQUATOR Centre and The Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice are pleased to invite you to their upcoming 2-day workshop to be held at Bond University, Gold Coast, Australia.

Date: 27 – 28 March 2018

Time: 8:45am – 5:00pm (Registration opens from 8:15am)


This workshop aims to take you from a research question to a complete study protocol. Preference will be given to those who wish to work on their own protocol. You will be asked to submit a brief outline beforehand. If you don’t have an idea ready for protocol development, you can still attend, and help with other participants’ protocols.

Who should attend:

This workshop is aimed at newer researchers who have a good understanding of evidence-based practice and study design, and are now ready to design their own research project. Study designs suitable to bring to this workshop include randomised trials, cohort studies (prospective or retrospective), case-control studies, and surveys.


The workshop will consist of short talks, followed by practical sessions in small groups. Two facilitators for each group will help development, answer questions, and ensure your idea gets the input needed to turn it into a protocol suitable for submission to an ethics committee, or ready to include in a grant application.

Registration costs for the 2 days: $600 per participant
