About this event

SA PoCoG, our dedicated interest group for psycho-oncology researchers and clinicians in South Australia, is hosting a webinar from 12:00pm - 1:30pm SA time (12:30pm - 2:00 pm AEST) on Thursday 21 October.

This, the third webinar in our South Australian series, focuses on: ‘Conducting research with vulnerable populations’ and will include presentations and a panel discussion with our invited experts.

Do you want to know more about conducting psycho-oncology research with vulnerable groups, but not sure where to start?

This webinar will focus on experiences of three South Australian researchers in conducting research with vulnerable populations, including ‘how to’ considerations, challenges and successes, followed by panel discussion.

Billie Bonevski is a Professor of Public Health and behavioural scientist interested in chronic disease prevention and her research is focused on designing and evaluating health behaviour change interventions at the individual, systems, and population levels. Her research targets population groups at high risk of disease due to sociodemographic, clinical, or cultural reasons. Her research is delivered within the community and real world settings such as mental health and drug and alcohol services, Aboriginal health services, and housing and financial aid services. She will outline evidence-based strategies for recruiting and retaining research participants.

Dr Kate Gunn is a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Rural Health at the University of South Australia. She carries out both qualitative and quantitative behavioural science-focused research on psycho-oncology, rural health and rural mental health-related issues. Kate's main research interests include understanding and addressing the psychosocial needs of rural people affected by cancer, rural help-seeking behaviour and the development, delivery and evaluation of web and telephone-based cancer support interventions. Kate’s research has resulted in improved scientific understanding of the health and mental health needs of rural communities, and in the delivery of previously unavailable, consumer-driven support services.

Dr Jessica Loyer is a qualitative social researcher in the Behavioural Research and Evaluation Unit at Cancer Council SA. She previously worked within the Food Values Research Group at the University of Adelaide, where she continues to hold a Visiting Research Fellowship. She has a broad background using qualitative methodologies across health, environment, food, and values research, and teaching expertise in social aspects of science topics. She currently facilitates the CALD Communities Focus Group Project, which seeks to understand barriers to engagement with cancer control programs among migrant communities in South Australia.

Please note we will send you a webinar link to join the meeting on the morning of Thursday 21 October.
