Expressions of interest: Clinician research collaborations

Clinicians need aphasia research that they can apply to make meaningful change in the lives of people with aphasia.

Partnering with clinicians

La Trobe University's Aphasia Lab wishes to collaborate with a broad group of clinicians who are interested in developing a clinically-relevant aphasia research agenda and engaging in the research process.

During four annual clinical-research meetings we hope to:

  • share current aphasia research and projects
  • discuss clinicians' thoughts, ideas, frustrations, hopes and interests regarding aphasia research
  • collaboratively generate a 'wish list' of future aphasia research
  • prioritise and identify ways to progress these ideas over the next 5 years.

Meetings will rotate through different health service sites in Melbourne.

Opportunities include:

  • collaboration between clinicians, researchers and people with aphasia
  • shared knowledge and learning
  • exploring avenues to fund research projects
  • active roles and responsibilities such as aphasia clinical champions and working group members
  • positively impacting on the lives of those living with aphasia.

Please join us for our first meeting
