This section contains past and future RRISIQ events (workshops and conferences) and some events organized by other institutions if they are recognized of interest to our members. It is possible to filter among the different categories of events by checking the boxes below the calendar. For our regular members it is also possible (when logged in) to suggest we add events to the calendar.

RRISIQ will accept to broadcast an external event provided that it is accessible to the community at large and that at least one member of the network is among the speakers.

"The realist approach is becoming more and more popular with researchers studying complex interventions. We have mobilized the principles of this approach in evaluating the conditions of the production of interdisciplinary work effects in cancerology teams, which is a typical example of a complex intervention in a health system that is complex on its own. Principles of the realist approach based on the elaboration of configurations between context (C), mechanisms (M) and effects (E) (C+M=E) appear to be better fitted for decision-making or research data-based action. However, elaboration of these configurations poses significant challenges for researchers. The objective of this presentation is to discuss key concepts of the realist approach, mobilized in evaluating a complex intervention using the example of interdisciplinary work in cancerology teams. This presentation takes a reflexive approach concerning learning “on and in practice”."
