A one day training course designed to introduce participants to the basic principles of qualitative research methods used in health and social care settings.  It will also help participants assess their own strengths and weaknesses. With an emphasis on group work and guided learning, participants will have the opportunity to focus upon the planning, conduct and analysis of in-depth interviews. 

This one day workshop gives participants an in-depth view of statistics and analysis of data that are most commonly used within research practices and other areas of health care; focusing primarily on key elements of quantitative data analysis.  Participants are also expected to be familiar with some research and statistical terminology. The workshop provides a framework for choosing the appropriate statistical test and outlines the principles behind formulating and testing statistical hypotheses. 

This two day workshop is designed to give participants an overview of basic statistics and analysis of data that is most commonly used within research practices and other areas of health care. It will focus on key elements of quantitative data analysis.  This workshop is aimed at those currently doing research, intending to do research or those with research interests. 

This introduction to the techniques essential to use existing published research covers issues of methodology and statistics in determining the quality and applicability of published research.  These skills form the basis for implementing evidence based healthcare. 

This offers an ambitious introduction to the research process and its attendant regulation, along with suggestions of sources of funding.  It also attempts to be a good mixture of didactic input followed by practical exercises that allow students to work through some of the issues involved in designing a basic research project.
