Bold Ideas Better Solutions 2021 Virtual

The annual Hopkins Centre event, ‘Bold Ideas Better Solutions 2021’ has gone virtual and will be presented as a live online seminar series, to be held on 18th August 2021 and 1st September 2021.

The focus this year is translating bold ideas into better solutions for the wellbeing of people with complex rehabilitation needs, their families, and advocates. Featuring the latest interdisciplinary research, the seminar series will address innovation in the disability and rehabilitation field, contemporary and emerging health interventions, rehabilitation practices that promote dignity and respect, and unmet needs in rehabilitation services identified by citizen and clinical researchers.

The seminar series will present a stimulating and interdisciplinary program from across The Hopkins Centre’s streams of research, with a combination of oral presentations, lightning talks, invited speakers, and panel session.

The symposium is convened by the founding partners of The Hopkins Centre—Griffith University and the Division of Rehabilitation at Metro South Hospital and Health Service. Together with our affiliate partners, Queensland Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance Commission, Spinal Life Australia, Synapse, Health Consumers Queensland, RACQ and Gold Coast University Hospital, the Centre has built a strong platform of industry collaboration and service user engagement. The Hopkins Centre is leading the way in interdisciplinary and responsive research that is user-informed and embedded in practice and service delivery. It provides a vehicle for finding research based solutions to complex challenges in disability and rehabilitation. Through partnerships and respectful sharing of diverse knowledge, The Hopkins Centre is generating system wide evidence and promoting the use of existing data to extend the quality, capacity and impact of rehabilitation and disability research.

Registration will open in June 2021.

Clinicians, researchers, industry partners, people with disability and lived rehabilitation experiences, are invited to register to attend the symposium.
