This one day training workshop will provide you with an understanding of why research is important, methods of how to develop a research culture and information on how to bring a clinical trial to your unit. You will also learn how to approach speaking to parents about research and asking for research consent.

Programme Topics Include:

  • Parents Perspective on Participating in Research
  • Research in a neonatal context outside of level 3/NICU’s 


The workshops will include presentations from clinicians and parents and the chance to work through example scenarios.

  • The research curriculum and how to evidence your research competencies and  running a successful journal club
  • Parent and professional attitudes to research 

Who should attend?

Whilst the scenarios used relate to neonatal trials, this training is suitable for any paediatric professional (medical, nursing, allied professions) that would like an introduction to research skills.


This event can be used as CPD. Certificates and written feedback (mini CEX for your portfolio) can be provided on request.
