Health professionals' experiences of health research
Researchers at the University of Oxford would like to hear from research nurses, research midwives and research allied health professionals about their experiences.
What is involved?
The study will involve interviewing nurses, midwives and allied health professionals working in research about their jobs and roles – from how they first became involved in doing research, their involvement in different research activities, and both the benefits and challenges they have faced in their roles.
The interviews will contribute to the award-winning health website, www.healthtalk.org, which is run by a charity and accredited by The Information Standard. The new section on research nurses, midwives and allied health professionals will provide a resource for peers, clinical colleagues and patients / participants. On the website you will be able to watch video clips, listen to the voices or read the accounts of people relating their experiences of research delivery roles.
Would you like to take part?
