eWORKSHOP #1: LinkedIn for Researchers

Transforming output into impact

Did you know that 90% of a decision is made before potential collaborators contact you? Or that ten pieces of content are consumed before someone decides to work with you? Well, according to research that’s the truth! Thus, if you’re not online you’re probably losing to your competitors. Or worse still, no research is included in the relevant policy framework. Thus, you might be finding it hard to:

  • Translate your research into real world applications. 
  • Acquire industry funding for your work.
  • Talk to or even find industry collaborators 
  • Keep a dialogue going with relevant contacts about your work.  

 You might even be afraid of having your ideas on display. Or perhaps you’re afraid your work isn’t translatable at all…. 

In this presentation, Dr Huysmans will go through using LinkedIn to help with research translation. Covering tips on:

  • building your profile,
  • growing your connections,
  • finding collaborators and;
  • sharing your research.

Systematic Reviews and Meta-analysis are considered the highest quality of evidence in biomedical research. The systematic review and Meta-analysis workshop is designed to teach participants how to plan, conduct, and communicate the results of a systematic review. Through this workshop comprising of lectures, assignments, demonstrations and hands-on sessions, we aimed to help researchers learn and implement the methodology and techniques used in systematic reviews and meta-analysis. The workshop will cover how to formulate an answerable research question, define inclusion and exclusion criteria, search for the evidence, extract data, assess the risk of bias in clinical trials, and perform a meta-analysis. The workshop is suitable for all healthcare professionals who plan to be a part of a clinical trial or perform a systematic review with specific ideas, professionals who have already have a title registered for Cochrane and non-Cochrane systematic review as well as the healthcare professionals who are keen to understand and interpret health research results and make healthcare better.
