The Research Education and Training Group is offering three bursaries for funded places on the Protocol Development School run by the UK EQUATOR Centre.
This workshop is for nurses, midwives, allied and other non-medical health professionals with an interest or experience in research, and a basic understanding of evidence-based practice and study design.
With an emphasis on practical sessions in small groups, experienced facilitators will give hands-on advice and guidance, with short talks to introduce key topics. We aim to ensure your idea gets the input needed to turn it into a scientifically robust well-written protocol suitable for a grant application, an ethics committee or review board submission, or for publication in a journal. You will be asked to submit a brief research outline no less than two weeks before the course begins (If you don’t yet have an idea ready for protocol development, you can still attend, and help with other participants’ protocols.)
Study designs suitable to bring to this workshop include randomised trials, cohort studies (prospective or retrospective), case-control studies, and surveys. Protocols for qualitative and mixed methods studies will also be covered.
Lunch and refreshments are included in the price of registration
Places are limited to facilitate small group learning.
