Preparing for Research

There are many ways to prepare yourself to be able to undertake research:

  • Increase your understanding and awareness of existing research relevant to your area of expertise by reading relevant journals, attending a journal club, going to hear presentations of research or by attend training in reading research papers.

  • Develop your research skills by taking part in clinical audit or research projects within your area. 

  • Further develop your research skills by undertaking a research methods training course as part of a Masters degree. Initiate your own research project within the training course, supported by NHS line managers and academic supervisors.

  • Train to be an independent researcher by undertaking a PhD.
