Date: 16 March 2023, 9:00-18:00 CET
Location: Hybrid format in the Sao Paolo room, Hanover-Fair, Hall 19, Hermes Allee, 30521 Hannover, Germany

Led by experienced and passionate researchers, this workshop equipped participants with the methodological approaches to advance global cancer research. Through this event, the organizers aimed to increase capacity inareas of public health views and sociological perspectives on cancer care and beyond - ultimately leading towards a better quality of life for individuals around the globe affected by these diseases.

The recent oncology workshop addressed methodological challenges and ethical implications for implementation research within the global health framework. Cancer care was used as example to increase competences in the design and conduction of such type of research. Gaining knowledge and competencies was achieved by a combination of a virtual presentation of key methodological elements that are frequently used in this type of research. Based on submitted abstracts five participants were selected by the organizing group and invited to present their research concepts within the auditorium. These presentations as well as the provided abstract resulted in comprehensive feedback by senior researchers in this field regarding the proposed project. In addition, an open discussion between all on-site participants gave further ideas and insights to the presenters. Further, the participants learned about prevailing research methods including eHealth and neglected diseases´ linked to cancer from the research proposals.

This full-day workshop provided participants with the knowledge and tools to pursue their passion for research within a vibrant, collaborative global health community. The German Alliance for Global Health Research (GLOHRA) strives to encourage interdisciplinary initiatives between researchers in Germany and beyond through this shared experience. This workshop is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of GLOHRA.
