Research Fundamentals for Disability Service Organisations

October 12, 2017, 9:30 am - October 13, 2017, 4:00 pm



This two day workshop covers practical research planning and design, and is tailored to support organisations to design effective in-house or collaborative research projects that will assist with program evaluation and the development of feedback channels from service users to management. Topics will include an overview of the research process, literature reviews, researchable questions, data collection/analysis and reporting, as well as an overview of the philosophical foundations of disability research, and the co-production of research with people with disability.

Professor Patricia O’Brien is the  Director of CDS and works as part of the CDS Inclusive Research Network; Patricia gives leadership within the Centre to a range of person centred activities and manages research projects that are underpinned by the question: What makes for a good life for people with disabilities?

Dr Tanya Riches is a Training, Development and Research Officer at CDS. Her research is located at the intersection of anthropology and human development, with a focus upon lived experience. She is interested in what makes life meaningful for people, including people with disabilities.
