Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research
Thursday-Friday 27-28 September 2018
St Anne’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 both qualitative and quantitative studies will be covered.
