Brief Summary

Research informs Evidence-Based Practice (EBP). In the conduct of research, researchers face several challenges globally but even more in lower-middle-income countries such as Ghana with limited resources and other competing factors.  This year’s World Evidence-based Healthcare Day 2023 campaign is focused on “Evidence and Global Health Equity” and aims to examine how the global evidence community can foster and embed equity within and across evidence ecosystems to advance global health equity.

As part of our advocacy arm, the EBP Research Group of the Ghana Physiotherapy Association joins other stakeholders in this year’s campaign by hosting a webinar themed; “Conducting Research in Ghana: highlighting the iniquities through Storytelling”. This webinar will discuss the challenges facing Ghanaian researchers and clinicians in conducting and publishing research, as well as recommendations to address these challenges through storytelling.



This webinar will:

  1. highlight the barriers and challenges in conducting research within the Ghanaian physiotherapy context
  2. facilitate a better understanding of the research landscape by explaining ways to facilitate smooth (challenge-free) research conduct in Ghana
  3. Advance the knowledge of Ghanaian physiotherapists on some recommended ways to address these challenges and encourage the conduct of research in Ghana


Mode of delivery

  • A 90-minute online webinar hosted on ZOOM.
