Research methods study day organised by the APM science committee.
This one day course will cover the key areas in the curriculum for research methods. It includes critical appraisal of systematic literature reviews, quantitative and qualitative literature, with ‘hands-on’ workshops. Research in palliative medicine, including a workshop on developing the research question will be covered. This course is essential for trainees who do not get research exposure during their training and those wanting to develop their interest or own research further.
