In this session, our three presenters, Dr Craig Lockwood, Dr Susan Furness and Mr Hilding Hanna, will be discussing the translation of research findings into practice. As experienced researchers, they will discuss the process by which their findings have been used to inform changes to practice, what are the processes and implications.

This will be followed by a discussion/Q&A session with the researchers.
