In this webinar, Tom Wainwright, an Associate Professor of Orthopaedics & Deputy Head of the Orthopaedic Research Institute at Bournemouth University will be talking about the world of Clinical Research. The term ‘Research’ is commonly used but there are many different types and levels. This is aimed at people working in clinical practice who are interested in understanding more about this area and potentially being involved in their own research project. We will have short presentation delivered from Tom followed by a Q&A session.
The presentation will cover:
– What does research mean?
– RCTs, meta-analysis, case studies – how do these differ, and which should be used?
– Lab vs field-based research
– Challenges / funding around research
– How to get into clinical research
