Looking for ways to involve patients and service users in research?
Want to help shape research priorities, design and deliveries?
Engaging in research is vital in addressing questions that arise in health and social care, producing new evidence and research to improve patient care.
This series of webinars presented by NIHR ARC North Thames Academy is inspired by our Becoming Research Active in-person workshop and intended as an introduction to engaging in research for frontline health and social care professionals with limited experience and knowledge of research.
These webinars will define key research concepts and processes and feature speakers who will discuss these ideas in the context of their own experience. The sessions are ideal for nurses, allied health professionals, public health or local government staff from NHS Trusts, NHS CCGs and Local authorities. Participants might have done a Masters level module in collecting and analysing data, or critical appraisal of research, or have helped to support research in your organisation or attended another one of our Academy courses. These webinars are not aimed at academics and/or researchers.
You can book a place for the first webinar using the link below. We are also launching the Becoming Research Active Online skills development programme, which will run in paralell to Activating Research and focus on providing practical guidance for each step of the research cycle. We use our newsletter to announce when events are available for booking, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to our mailing list.
