SPAHC Research Festival 2020
Building multidisciplinary teams
The Primary and Allied Health Care Research Festival fosters collaboration between different departments and research centers within our school by building multidisciplinary teams and giving our ECRs and HDR students the chance to shine in a supportive environment.
On Tuesday 13th October the School of Primary and Allied Health Care held their annual research festival via Zoom. The festival activities included:
- Departmental and Centre research showcase, sharing research with a multidisciplinary focus
- Early Career Researcher (ECR) and Higher Degree Research (HDR) student poster presentations (see below for more detail)
- Poster awards
- Keynote speaker
The event was a great success due to the involvement and engagement of staff and students from across all areas of the School.
The detailed program can be downloaded here.

2020 SPAHC Poster Presentations
Early Career Researchers (ECR) and Higher Degree Research (HDR) students participated in the School Poster Presentation competition.
Although not a registrant in the competition, Head of School, Professor Terry Haines was keen to learn how to develop a video presentation using the new School poster template so he could share in the experience of preparing for this part of the event (see his poster presentation here).
The 2020 Poster Presentation winner was Dr Areni Altun (General Practice) for her poster presentation titled Exploring the health-seeking behaviours of women of a refugee background living with chronic pain.
