The Canberra Health Annual Research Meeting (CHARM) is hosted by the Centre of Health and Medical Research in the ACT Health Directorate and Canberra Health Services, in collaboration with the region’s university partners, the Australian National University, the University of Canberra, UNSW Canberra, Australian Catholic University and Australian Institute of Sport.

Essential to successful research translation is the communication of research with our stakeholders. CHARM is a three-and-a-half day meeting which includes expert presentations from international and national speakers, local clinicians and scientists, panel discussions and workshops. The meeting seeks to explore how interdisciplinary research can contribute to a sustainable health system through discovery and collaboration.

CHARM facilitates collaboration between health researchers, students, policy makers, carers, consumers, industry and clinicians from a diverse range of health disciplines and is the premier meeting for the communication and translation of health-related research practice in the ACT.

CHARM 2021 will be held as an online conference from 27-30 July. The program committee is pleased to present the exciting program that was developed for CHARM 2020, prior to its cancellation due to COVID-19.

There will be a virtual online poster display as well as the opportunity for researchers to display printed posters at the Canberra Hospital.

Principle themes of the meeting include pre-clinical and clinical research, nursing, allied health, population health research, data analytics, policy research, quality assessments and evaluations.

By providing opportunities to collaborate and network this professional meeting strengthens interdisciplinary research. The meeting showcases the far-reaching impact that health research in the ACT has on the advancement of health care and service delivery practices demonstrating benefits to society, culture, our environment and the economy.
