Course Outline:

This two day course is aimed at those working within an NHS research role. The course aims to give brief reference to research activities within comprehensive short, sharp training sessions for research staff- it is aimed to be most useful for those who are about 6 months in post, but it will be a good developmental opportunity for staff who have been in post for any length of time. The support and delivery functions/services will be showcased, in turn demonstrating the expertise within Health and Care Research Wales.

Following completion of the 2 days, delegates will have a good understanding of working in NHS research within Wales through the knowledge and practice of each service and function delivering this training.

Each session will provide an informative and interactive overview, giving an insightful picture into the function/service delivering the training and associated research processes.

Please note a certificate of attendance will only be issued if delegates complete all elements of the training.
