Description

The fourth annual Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust Research and Development Symposium is being held on Thursday 28th June 2018 from 08:45 – 16:15 in the Medical Education Centre, Level 1 at North Devon District Hospital. We have had fantastic feedback from each symposium that we have held thus far. This year we are focusing on Research undertaken by Allied Health Professionals and Nurse/Midwives within the NHS.

This year we are holding a Dragons' Dens themed event in the afternoon. This is open to NHS staff with an idea for a piece of Clinical Research to pitch to a panel of judges. The winner will receive guidance on developing their idea and up to £500 to be paid to their department as backfill for their time to develop their Research. If you would like to participate then please email ndht.research@nhs.net with a 200 word outline of your Research proposal by the 10/06/2018, the final selection to present at the symposium will be informed by email by the 15/06/2018.

The symposium is aimed at Health Professionals, patients and relatives, but open to all, so please come along and learn about the innovative research being carried out across our Trust. Please let your colleagues and friends know about this informative day. Feel free to 'pop in' for an hour or the whole day. It is FREE to attend and there will be lunch and refreshments provided throughout the day.
