Research Skills Seminar Series:  

The Research Skills Seminar Series (RSSS) is funded by the Department of Health WA, a partner of the WA Health Translation Network.

It offers seminars on key topics across the entire health research process from concept to research translation. Each seminar is presented by an expert in the field. The seminars are free of charge and open access.

All of our seminars are recorded and available on the seminar event page one week after the seminar for a period of time. A copy of the seminar resources is also provided.

Online via Scopia and your PC or your Video-conference system: 

The PMH Research Skills Seminar Series is available via video-conference through the State-wide Telehealth Service (STS). This means participants are able to watch and listen to the seminar live via their personal computer, laptop or portable device using a software application called Scopia.  The Scopia application integrates with the WA Health Translation Network and is supported technically by the State-wide Telehealth Service.

Participants from an organisation with a video-conferencing system are also able to watch the seminar by either dialling in from either within the WA Health Translation Network or outside of the WA Health Translation Network. For further detailed information and instructions please access:
