Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research
Turn your research question into a perfect protocol in just two days!
Thursday-Friday 12-13 April 2018, 9am-5pm
St Catherine’s College Oxford
This workshop is for nurses, midwives, allied and other 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.
Registration costs for the 2 days:
Including accommodation (Thursday evening dinner + bed & breakfast St Catherine’s)
Not including accommodation
Lunch and refreshments are included in the price of registration
Maximum number of places available is 20 to facilitate small group learning.
