Research to results: Using evidence to improve outcomes for families
Why is it so had to implement research evidence for policy reform? Is there a "research to relevance gap"?
The Australian Institute of Family Studies is committed to creating and communicating knowledge to accelerate positive outcomes for families and society.
The AIFS Conference 2016 will draw key thinkers, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners from across different sectors and disciplines, including education, health, and social sciences. Together we will apply interdisciplinary expertise and forge new solutions to complex problems.
Be part of this exciting conversation and contribute to innovation and action at the AIFS 2016 Conference.
Three keynote speakers headline the program:
- Professor John Lynch: Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Adelaide
- Justice Jennifer Coate: Judge of the Family Court of Australia; Commissioner on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
- Professor Greg Duncan: Distinguished Professor in the School of Education at the University of California (US).
Through a combination of presentations, keynote addresses, Q&A, workshops and social occasions the AIFS conference will provide an opportunity to come together to discover and discuss the latest research on issues affecting Australian families.
