A Clinician’s Perspective: Collaboration in Research and its Impact


Join us to explore the impact of storytelling in promoting research.

This webinar is targeted at any researcher interested in storytelling, stakeholder engagement and reducing the knowledge translation gap.


We often hear that it takes, on average, 17 years to convert clinical research into better health outcomes — a significant and adverse gap in knowledge translation. The key to overcome this is using storytelling to translate research, engage key stakeholders and improve communications.

In this complimentary webinar, Dr. Chris Elliot, General and Developmental Pediatrician at Southern Pediatrics will present a front-line clinician’s perspective on engaging in research within a busy clinical role, and the role and impact of storytelling.

Key Highlights:

  • Learn how to create research that matters
  • Help researchers better understand and engage with front-line practitioners in research projects
  • Demonstrate an approach to storytelling in research and the impact it has on generating momentum

Please note that certificates will be issued to participants who attended the live session.

Dr. Elliot is a pediatrician, educator and health communicator who has more than 20 years experience working and training in Medicine.  As a hands-on parent himself, Dr. Elliot is committed to practical, useful health care and communication. Despite a lack of paid research time in his clinical role, Dr. Elliot helped create, and currently leads, the SUCCEED Child Feeding Research Alliance. Started in 2017, this is the only collaboration of researchers, clinicians and parents in Australia that solely focuses on children who have complex feeding difficulties. The SUCCEED Alliance has received multiple competitive research grants, received national news coverage and has grown to include 12 clinical centres, three universities and dozens of families with research output that has a national impact. It has used innovative research methods and storytelling to engage, understand and improve the lives of children whose primary medical conditions make it hard for them to safely eat and drink.
