RESEARCH RELAYS for rehabilitation practice

   Relay - either as a noun or a verb may involve passing information from one person to another - one practice to another - one location to another - often with a goal or destination in mind. Also associated with ensuring good connections and speed. We hope you will join us in our FREE WEBINARS where learners and graduates from the Master of Rehabilitation Science Program present results from systematic reviews or their major project research. By relaying their results and any further work they have done in the area, we invite you to pick up the 'virtual baton' and discuss how it could influence your practice and work setting. Make new connections in just one hour!

We will return in 2019 with our Research Relay webinar series and will announce the speakers in the next couple of months so stay tuned - In the meantime check out our Fall 2017 & previous years webinars!
