Educational webinars for nurses interested in research

Learning and development opportunity

During October, a series of four webinars will assist nurses to master specific research skills and expertise. The 60-90 minute webinars will provide participants with the opportunity to ask questions, workshop ideas, and share their own experiences. Hosted on Zoom by specialists in the field and supportive nursing staff in attendance, distinct learning outcomes will give you the confidence to take your new skills into practice. 

Register now for the free webinars in October. You must be a nurse to attend.

Recorded webinars from earlier in the year are now available online to view at your leisure. They include Experience-based Co-design (EBCD), presented by Professor Theresa Wiseman, Clinical Professor of Applied Health Research in Cancer Care from the University of Southampton. EBCD is an approach that enables staff and patients - or other service users, to co-design services and care together in partnership.  

You can also watch Fundamentals of Grant Writing for Nurses, Ethical Review of Human Research Projects, COVID-19 and Research Considerations. The webinars have been edited into segments of around 10-20 minutes each to make them accessible for easy viewing.

Watch these webinars and more, including Nurse-led Research Case Studies.
