Are you a nurse who cares for patients affected by cancer?
Do you have a great clinical question that you would like to be able to turn into a research project to benefit your patients?
Turning Nursing Ideas into Research is a new, one-day workshop developed by the University of Melbourne’s Department of Nursing and School of Population and Global Health and the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre to build confidence and skills in cancer nurses who want to carry out a clinical research project.
You will spend the day with a small group of peers talking about ideas/questions and potential opportunities for research. How to refine topics or problems will be explored. You’ll learn how to pitch an idea and get others onboard, identify key stakeholders, and plan a research project.
The workshop will be facilitated by Prof Mei Krishnasamy, VCCC Research and Education Lead for Nursing and Dr Helen Jordan, Evaluation and Implementation Science Unit, School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne.
Who should attend?
Nurses who work with cancer patients and who may be interested in carrying out a clinical research project. Participants will benefit by bringing ideas to the forum which can be shared and workshopped with others.
This is a new opportunity offered exclusively to nurses within the seven clinical partners of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre. Places are limited but all are encouraged to apply.
