Who should take BRRIC Training?
BRRIC training is open to researchers, faculty, patient and family advisors, health care providers, SCPOR supported research teams, students, research and health organizations, and any other individual or organization seeking to engage Indigenous communities in research. While the training has been tailored with the particulars of patient-oriented health research in mind, researchers and their teams pursuing research involving Indigenous peoples in non-health related fields are encouraged to attend.
Is there a cost to attend the training?
No, BRRIC sessions are free for all to attend.
I am a patient and family advisor.
Are expenses related to my participation covered?
Yes, costs incurred for patient and family advisors attending BRRIC training are reimbursed including mileage, accommodation, per diem and honoraria, among others. If you register for the event as a patient and family advisor, you will be contacted by a member of the Indigenous Research and Engagement Expertise (IREE) Platform to begin the process of pre-expense approval. If you would like to know whether you qualify as a patient and family advisor, please contact the IREE Platform via the Indigenous Peoples’ Health Research Centre (IPHRC) at IPHRC@uregina.ca or (306) 337-2461.
How often are BRRIC training sessions held?
Will there be training sessions with additional content offered in the future?
