About this event

Are you interested in research, but have not yet had the chance to get involved?

Do you have an idea for a health, public health or social care research project, but don’t know how to get started?

Are you thinking of a career in research, but feel intimidated at the prospect of finding training and funding?

If “yes”, then register for our online Starting Research Workshop 2022!

What is the Starting Research Workshop? A free to attend, half-day session, on how to move from thinking about doing research to taking your first steps in getting support, dedicated time and funding to actually do it.

The workshop will cover:

  • Routes into research
  • What makes a good research question
  • Establishing the evidence-gap: libraries, literature searches & reviews
  • Finding a good supervisor
  • An introduction to patient & public involvement
  • Finding training and funding to develop research ideas
  • Sources of other support for undertaking research
  • Taking first steps in research

Who should attend? This event is relevant to health care professionals, social care and public health practitioners who are thinking about research.
