Vancouver will be the host city for a diverse group of Peer Research Associates (PRA) from all across Canada taking part in a National Dialogue on Support Standards for people living with HIV who work in the HIV research field.
CAHR and the Public Health Agency of Canada are sponsoring the participants of this incredibly important event, where GIPA principles are embodied and employed during the development and delivery of this Dialogue Session.
Terry Howard, Director of Community Based Research for Positive Living BC will facilitate this unique opportunity for PHAs from across Canada to come together on June 18, 2014, and share their thoughts, experiences, and input on the development of support standards for PRAs in Canada.
The summary of the Dialogue Session will provide the basis for an open access online toolkit that researchers and peers alike can consult for tips on providing the basic support services required when employing PRAs on new (and existing) research projects.
Look for the online toolkit here on this website in the near future!
