Please note that this event will not go ahead until further notice, due to restrictions related to COVID-19
Do you want to specialise in the care of older people?
Do you want to find out more about how clinical research works?
Come and learn from expert clinical academics who specialise in research with older people, in a friendly and interactive environment.
NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre hosts this two day course, which is aimed at medical trainees who have an interest in research with Older People. Healthcare professionals who have an interest in gaining research skills are also welcome. It will equip you with the knowledge of how research works – from study conception, through funding, conduct, analysis and dissemination of the results.
Interactive group work will show you how to appraise evidence, write abstracts, review an ethics proposal and pitch a grant proposal.
Whether you are thinking of embarking on research or wanting to gain the essential competencies for accreditation, this course will show you how you can engage with research, and trainees with recent research experience will share their stories of what it is like to make the jump from clinical work to the research arena.
