Research Study Design and Management

The Introduction to Health Research workshops provide an overview of the important definitions and concepts, as well as an introduction to the ever-changing landscape of health research. The workshop aims to provide you with a greater understanding of the processes involved in undertaking health research, as well as highlight the agencies that are available to support you in this endeavour. In this workshop the question of how to identify important clinical research questions will be addressed. There will also be an overview of research methods in health.

This would be invaluable for any postgraduate or healthcare professional starting out in health research or for those who wish to refresh their knowledge. As the workshop is open to both academics and clinicians it is hoped that this will bring diverse and fruitful discussions as well as networking opportunities.

The new Advanced Training Courses from the Graduate School are offering three half day workshops on the Introduction to Health Research, run by Kent Health. The aim is to provide an overview of the ever-changing landscape of health research, including important definitions and concepts.

You will gain a greater understanding of the processes involved in undertaking health research, and become aware of the agencies available to support this endeavour. The session is for anyone starting out in this area, especially postgraduates, as well as for those who wish to refresh their knowledge.

Fri 27th Nov 1-4pm : Health Research: The UK Landscape

An introduction to the landscape of healthcare provision and the related agencies (e.g. CRN, AHSN, CCGs, NHS Trusts etc) and the processes involved in health research in the UK (e.g. research governance, REC approval)

Fri 18th Mar 1- 4pm: Developing your Research Question

An introduction to the pragmatics of health research in the UK including permissions required to access patients (including own patients) for research. This includes how long it takes to recruit patients and how to be realistic about the numbers of patients able to recruit.
