Invitation: SHLA Fall Annual Meeting 2016
Greetings from your SHLA President – Lukas Miller!
On behalf of the SHLA 2016-17 executive, I’m pleased to announce that the SHLA Fall Meeting will be taking place on October 21, 2016 in Regina, SK. We have booked space (once again) at Sask Polytechnic’s Wascana Campus in their beautiful 11th floor boardroom (the same location as last Fall).
Call for Presentations
We have time available for 2 short (approx. 10-20 minute) member presentations. If you are working on a project or publication and seeking a chance to practice your presentation skills and share your findings, we encourage you to consider presenting at the meeting! Please contact Michelle Dalidowicz to make arrangements. Also, please try to let us know at least a month in advance (September 21st).
CADTH’s knowledge mobilization liaison officer(s) will be providing a workshop on critical appraisal to the membership. This session is aimed at familiarizing non-researchers with aspects of evidence-based research and assessing the quality of papers and studies. This should be a valuable session for anyone providing information services to medical professionals. For more information about CADTH and their programs and services, visit their website at www.cadth.ca.
Location, Schedule & Agenda
A more detailed schedule and agenda including time, location, and a summary of the day’s events will be forwarded via email to all members closer to the meeting date. If you have any items you feel should be covered at the meeting, please forward them to the Executive. In the meantime, stay tuned! (Minutes for the previous meeting will also be forwarded).
