POPLAR EDIIA Series pt. 2: Building Projects with an EDIIA Lens
Equitably improving primary health care requires research and practice-based learning that are thoroughly grounded in the principles of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Indigeneity, and Accessibility (EDIIA). POPLAR, Ontario’s provincial primary healthcare Practice-Based Learning and Research Network, is hosting four monthly webinars, beginning in July, for anyone who wants to learn more about building these principles into their work.

POPLAR’s vision is to advance equitable primary healthcare delivery and health outcomes for everyone in Ontario. We aim to embed EDIIA principles in all our activities. This ongoing learning journey requires self-awareness, reflection, and action. We are committed to developing approaches to leadership, research, data collection, knowledge mobilization, knowledge translation, and data management that are in keeping with EDIIA. Join us in our journey.

Pt 2: Building Research Projects with an EDIIA Lens

When building value-driven and participatory approaches into research design, it's important to consider opportunities for engaging those who are frequently under-represented in research. What are the key components and questions to consider when imbedding EDIIA into “re-search”?

During this session, you’ll hear from Dr. Viv Ramsden, Professor and Research Director in the Department of Academic Family Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan who will share her experiences in developing community-led participatory research.
