Fireside Chat

| Free


CADDRA members are invited to join the 2022 series of free, member-only, virtual Fireside Chats.   

In our third Fireside Chat of 2022, “Bringing “research” into your clinical practice: The why’s, what’s, how to’s and all the rest”, Dr. Carlin Miller, Dr. Maggie Toplak and Dr. Ainslie Gray will share their stories, experiences and expertise and answer audience questions on how to integrate research into clinical practice. This is an interactive session and attendees are encouraged to ask questions and get involved in the discussion.


About this Session

 Evidence-based practice has been a critical part of our assessment and treatment of families with ADHD. “Getting the evidence” is an important component! CADDRA has always been committed to keeping up with the latest research on ADHD and related issues ever since this organization started. In 2014, CADDRA introduced ADHD Research Day, a formal addition of talks and posters that showcase some of the latest research on ADHD, especially from Canadian researchers and trainees. The interest and engagement in this 1 day conference ahead of the CADDRA conference has been growing over these last few years, and more clinicians are expressing interest in research-related activities in their practices. We have invited researchers and clinicians to join this Fireside Chat, to describe their stories, experiences and expertise on how this can happen in your practice. We hope to answer questions, learn from members their perspectives on how to successfully integrate research and to share ideas on how to truly integrate “the data” with support and care of our families.
