Heidi says “Getting started in research can feel daunting but a great first step is the literature review. My clinical background is in Obstetrics and Gynaecology but I am currently lucky enough to work as part of the Medical Education Research Group at Newcastle University. Having recently embarked on my PhD journey I am full immersed in the world of literature reviews and am delighted to share my insights with you in this webinar.

Coming up with an idea and writing a research question

Our third session will be lead by Lily Lamb (GP and NIHR Doctoral Fellow) and Hugh Alberti (Professor of GP Education), to be held on 20th December 2023.

‘Translating your bright idea into achievable research questions is crucial in moving forward with your project and securing the support you need. I started out as a GP in 2015 and quickly saw all sorts of problems I wanted to do something about. NIHR funding initially as an In Practice Fellow and now as a Doctoral Fellow has facilitated my recent journey of turning my ideas into research questions in my area of interest, medical education and securing the GP workforce. I’m looking forward to sharing my learning and top tips from the process with you all’ – Dr Lily Lamb

Running interviews and focus groups

The fifth session in our series, took place on 21st February 2024, lead by Doyin Alao (NIHR GP Clinical Lecturer) Hugh Alberti (Professor of GP Education).

Interviews and focus groups are a great way of gaining deep understanding of problems and potential solutions in clinical education. But they must be done properly to get good quality data that addresses the research questions. I am a GP and Academic Clinical Lecturer in Newcastle University. I found it interesting to learn about qualitative methods during my MD in medical education, where I conducted interviews and focus groups. I am looking forward to sharing my insights with you in this webinar.

The seventh session in our series, ‘Tackling the practicalities of research’ took place on 17th April 2024, led by Hugh Alberti (Professor of GP Education) and Katie Webb (School of Medicine Cardiff University).

Undertaking educational research can seem daunting to start with and particularly some of the practical issues. The session addressed questions such as: Do you need funding and if so where can you go for it? Do you need permission and from whom? Do you need ethics permission and how do you go about getting it? What about involving public and patient involvement – what is this and how do you arrange it?
