An exciting learning experience for peer researchers & emerging academic researchers. Sunday, November 20, 2016.
Working with people living with HIV and/or HCV as Peer Research Associates (PRAs) benefits the research teams, the process and the research evidence. But engaging people living with HIV and/or HCV as researchers also comes with the great responsibility of supporting PRAs in specific ways.
This one-day educational and KTE workshop will:
- highlight the role of PRAs in the syndemics,
- showcase practical support tools and best practices for PRAs, and
- explore real life scenarios in which PRAs are supported.
Facilitated by experienced academics, service providers and PRAs, the workshop will provide a broad overview of how, why and when PRAs must be supported in four areas: administrative, financial, emotional and educational.
We have designed this workshop for all research stakeholders; peer researchers and emerging academic researchers will benefit the most. Only those working in HIV and/or HCV research are eligible. All travel and accommodation expenses are covered as well as registration and a two-night hotel stay to attend the OHTN’s conference Endgame: Stopping the Syndemics that drive HIV.
This workshop is supported by:

- Ontario HIV Treatment Network
- REACH 2.0
