SALHN Four Fields of Enquiry

The theme for Research Week 2022 was based on the SALHN Four Fields of Enquiry,  with a day being dedicated to each of the Four Fields: Discovery Science, Clinical Trials, Health Services Research and Continuous Improvement / Implementation Science.

The Four Fields of Enquiry aims to drive a culture of questioning and capability in research and continuous improvement at SALHN through an enquiry framework.

For more information on the SALHN Four Fields of Enquiry please see the following video

2022 Research Week 

SALHN Research Week ran from 26 to 30 September 2022. Over the week, we had 55 speakers presenting across the four fields of enquiry.

There were 608 registered attendees with strong attendance, both in-person and online. Each day, we ran concurrent professional development workshops and we were joined by five exhibitors and 20 high school students from our local catchment area.

Other interest pieces included the Improvement Gallery and The Discovery Science Artwork Competition.  

More information about the exciting program that was delivered can be found on the Whova app.
