This foundational course is designed to build research capacity amongst clinicians for everyday practice. The program will guide participants through the basics of research design - developing a research question and protocol, tips for ethics, data collection and the art of survey writing, effective literature searching, statistics and critical appraisals. In 2020 we will also provide information on the variety of tools available to support evidence reviews and research projects. Participants will acquire the tools to form a firm foundation for any research undertaken in their area. The program will utilise open panel discussions, interactive presentations and expert speakers.

  • use research terminology and identify appropriate study designs to utilise within their everyday practice
