BJA and NIAA Research Methodology Workshop – The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA)
September 2, 2016 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM£150
A joint workshop with the British Journal of Anaesthesia and the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia to introduce participants to the way in which good research should be conducted and presented.
The workshop will be useful for anaesthetists of any grade who are already involved in research or those who are about to embark on a research project. Post FRCA Specialist Registrars and Lecturers will find this meeting to be particularly appropriate to their needs since knowledge of research methodology is one of the non-clinical topics which form an important part of Post FRCA training. Even if actual research is not undertaken it is considered essential for trainees to acquire an understanding of research methodology so that they are able to critically appraise research reports in the literature.
Teaching sessions will address: developing a research idea; study design; project management; analysis; presentation and interpretation of data; dissemination of results.
Group sessions will allow participants to: provide criticism of a published research paper; design a clinical trial; detect common pitfalls in analysis and interpretation of data.
