Are you looking to expand your research skills and knowledge? Our bite-size online research masterclass is a good place to start!

Led by experienced researchers and nursing professionals, you will learn about the latest developments in nursing research, data analysis, and evidence-based practice.

At the masterclass, Professor Alison Leary discusses some of the research she has led with the QNI International Community Nursing Observatory (ICNO) and its impact, including key research into the experiences of care home staff during Covid-19. Alison covered how community nurses can contribute or get involved in research: as participants, collaborating in research or being active users of evidence.

At this masterclass, Dr Jenni Burt outlines how to approach the critical appraisal of qualitative research papers, with a particular focus on assessing the rigour of methods used, the coherence of findings, and the likely transferability of insights generated. 

In this masterclass, Professor Catherine Walshe outlines how to write for a peer-reviewed research-focused journal, focusing on the audience, structure, and content of the paper.

At the masterclass, Dr Emma Rowland presents qualitative data analysis techniques, specifically focusing on reflexive thematic analysis (Braun and Clarke 2019).
