Watch Recording: The Marian Barrett Lecture 2022: Embedding consumer participation in research

On May 11, the Eve of International Nurses Day, the Department of Nursing was delighted to hold the annual Marian Barrett Lecture as our first in person event in over two years.

Held at the Ian Potter Auditorium, we welcomed  Professor Leanne Aitken as the main speaker. She discussed the importance and benefits of consumer and community involvement in research and the challenges faced when trying to do so. Find out more information on the lecture and the speaker.

The hybrid event was a fantastic occasion to come together in person and online as a Department and profession to appreciate the contributions made by nurses to the community to improve quality and access to healthcare. Following the lecture, there was a cocktail session, providing an excellent opportunity to network.
