Event Details

The focus of this event is to bring together preventive health researchers who are applying systems thinking methods and approaches in their current research work.The event will involve a mixture of short presentations and facilitated activities in order to draw out the knowledge and experience in the room.  

Key Discussions: 

  • What contexts and issues are conducive to systems research?
  • What methodological challenges have emerged and how can we contend with them?
  • Issues of ethics and co-creation with community partners
  • Communicating systems research outcomes – what can and should we talk about?  

This event is for preventive health researchers who are actively and consciously applying systems approaches in their work, and who have a working understanding of systems thinking and approaches.

How we are asking you to participate 

We are asking participants to come with a willingness and openness to speak about their experiences and insights, and to collectively create this learning exchange. The facilitator will lead an engaging suite of activities, but participants will be the active drivers in creating the content and shared learning opportunities.

What we will not be doing in this event: 

  • Teaching: systems 101 or systems theory
  • Teaching or applying technology based systems approaches
