Research CARES

Research CARES (Clinicians, Advocates, Researchers, Educators & Students)

Clinicians, advocates, researchers, educators and students coming together to improve patient care.

Research CARES is a zoom chat series hosted by the Athletic Training Research Agenda (ATRA) Committee.  The series brings athletic trainers and advocates together and provides a format for open dialogue, discussion and collaboration with the overall goal to improve patient care.  Each month will focus on a new topic. The 45 minute event will begin with a brief presentation (5-10min) by a “content lead”.  Following the presentation, attendees are placed in breakout rooms for open dialogue and discussion. Breakout rooms include 8-10 participants and are a mix of clinicians, advocates, educators, researchers and students.  ATRA Committee members will moderate each room/discussion. This series is meant to be highly fluid, open and interactive discussions.

REGISTRATION: This is a free event but pre-registration is required.  During the registration process, attendees are asked to best describe their primary role in patient care (clinician, advocate, researcher, educator, student) to assist with breakout room placement. Space is limited to 50 attendees. Register via the link below.

Please reach out to Kathryn LaLonde with any questions.
