Clinical Data to Publication

The research workshop will take participants on a journey through the various research language, data collection methods and analysis techniques right up to publication. Using simple practical emergency based examples, participants will learn how to conduct research in their department. Throughout the workshop participants will learn how to collect and analyse the data (Quantitative, Qualitative and Mixed Methods) leading to publication of the results in a peer reviewed journal. This workshop is designed for beginners and early career researcher alike.
