Digital Health Learning Corner

The Women’s Health Research Institute (WHRI) is collaborating with the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute (BCCHR) on a virtual learning series to support our investigators and trainees working on digital health projects to improve the health of children, women, and other marginalized genders. This learning series is for researchers, care providers, and other stakeholders interested in incorporating digital technologies in a health intervention or health systems process. These sessions aim to equip learners to succeed – from project initiation through to implementation – and will include topics such as evaluating digital technologies, usability testing, privacy and security, intellectual property, and more.

Be sure to keep updated with WHRI and BCCHR, as new sessions for 2022 will be announced soon. If you missed a session, the video recordings are archived below. We look forward to continuing to learn and innovate together.
