Event description

Description

We're bringing together people living with stroke, researchers & clinicians to discuss strategies for including everyone in stroke research.

Our speakers have:

  • worked together to co-design research studies
  • developed strategies to include people who have often been left out of research programs
  • contributed to research in various ways.

During the workshop we will develop a practical how-to guide – ‘top tips’ for researchers and stroke survivors on working together to make research better meet everyone’s needs.

Interpreter:

  • If you need a foreign language or sign language interpreter, please let us know and we’ll do our best to organise one.

By Train:

Catch the Hurstbridge line train to Heidelberg and then it is about a 10 minute walk at average walking speed to The Florey (Melbourne Brain Centre). The station has a steep ramp and you will need to cross Studley Road at a pedestrian crossing. There are two options:

  • Enter the Austin Hospital car park at Studley Road and take the lift to level 1. Then use another set of lifts to go to level 4 then follow the signs to the Melbourne Brain Centre.
  • After crossing Studley Road turn right and go downhill to the next intersection, turn left into Burgundy Street then it is uphill to the Melbourne Brain Centre.

By Bus:

The 903 bus stops in Burgundy Street near the The Florey/Melbourne Brain Centre. It is about a 5 to 10 minute walk at average walking speed to the front entrance of the building. If you are on the north side of Burgundy Street then you will need to use the overpass to cross the busy street.

By Car:

  • Drop-off bay at the front door of The Florey/Melbourne Brain Centre, 245 Burgundy Street
  • Discount parking ($17) is available in the main Austin car park (entry via Studley Road or Burgundy Street). Before paying at the end of the day you will need a voucher - pick this up from Jan on the day
  • Limited free disabled car parking is available (please advise if needed when booking)
  • Street parking is mostly limited to 2 hours and is very hard to find

Toilet:

  • A wheelchair accessible toilet is on the same level as the workshop and will accommodate a large power wheelchair.

Quiet Space – sensory needs:

  • The workshop will be held in a large room with seating for up to 70 people, and there will be space for wheelchairs and mobility aids.
  • There will be another room close to the meeting room for use by anyone at any time during the sessions.

Sound:

  • Microphones will be used by speakers at all times.
  • Presentations will be recorded and shared via YouTube with captions so that they are available to watch back later.
  • Unfortunately there is no hearing loop in the room.

Please contact Jan if you would like to discuss any access needs you have that we haven’t covered. janmc@unimelb.edu.au
