Workshop 3: Choose a research
This workshop aims to help all potential/actual researchers identify the most appropriate research approach to undertaking their research. How do you know what approach is the best fit with personal values, clinical assumptions and most importantly, in answering the research question.

Centre for Nurse & Midwife led Research
The CNMR brings together UCLH and UCL to support and enable nurses and midwives in developing world-class quality of care research. It is located in, and funded by, the UCLH/UCL Biomedical Research Centre.
The CNMR aims to establish a formal Clinical Academic Pathway to develop clinical and academic research leadership for nurses and midwives at UCLH and UCL. It includes a resource centre to facilitate all nurses and midwives employed by UCLH and UCL wishing to engage in developing evidence-based practice.
The CNMR seeks to encourage a process of individual and institutional development that will lead to higher levels of skills and greater ability to perform useful research in partnership with patients, academics and clinicians.
