During the conference delegates could choose from 5 engaging and interactive
workshops to develop their primary care research skills!
Learning how to plan and complete a research project: An essential beginning for new researchers
A/Prof Pascale Dettwiler (University of Adelaide), Dr Kylie Vuong (University of New South Wales)
Writing for publication: Tips and tricks for emerging researchers
Presenter: A/Prof Katharine Wallis (The University of Queensland)
Publishing your research is an important part of research. To publish, researchers need to know how to prepare a logical, structured scientific article. Writing skills are also important for writing research grant proposals, ethics applications and reports. This workshop aims to develop participants’ knowledge and skills for preparing scientific papers and to develop generic writing skills. Participants will get basic information and practical advice on how to prepare a scientific paper and how to choose a journal. Participants will learn how to structure their material logically by answering the questions: Why was this important? (Rationale), What is already known? (Background), What knowledge gap does this research fill? (Aim), What did you do and how? (Methods), What did you find? (Results), and So what? (Discussion). Participants will also learn how to use consistent syntax.
Designing good qualitative research projects: A fun mystery box challenge for researchers new to qualitative research
A/Prof Louise Stone (Australian National University), Elizabeth Waldron (Flinders University)
Analysing qualitative data: Learning how to undertake reflexive thematic analysis for qualitative and mixed methods research
Dr Chris Barton (Monash University), Dr Pallavi Prathivadi (Monash University)
This workshop will be of value to doctoral, early career and mid-career researchers new to qualitative research and wanting to learn about the fundamentals of thematic analysis of qualitative data.
Designing hybrid effectiveness and implementation trials for the General Practice setting
Dr Belinda Parker (Black Dog Institute), Dr Rebecca Hardy (Black Dog Institute), Dr Alexis Whitton (Black Dog Institute, University of New South Wales)
Research trials often focus on the effectiveness of an intervention. However, translating these interventions into improved models of patient care is critically reliant on the successful implementation of the intervention into clinical workflows. Although more complex by design, hybrid effectiveness-implementation studies represent a useful means by which researchers can assess the effectiveness of an intervention, while also gaining important insights into the factors most likely to contribute to the successful implementation of the intervention into clinical practice. The aim of this interactive e-workshop is to provide attendees with an overview of how hybrid effectiveness-implementation trials are designed and conducted, with a special focus on how different types of data (both quantitative and qualitative) can be used to best address research questions related to effectiveness versus those related to implementation. The workshop will be well-suited to individuals interested in enhancing the translational potential of their research, as well as people who wish to learn more about how to successfully identify, measure, and resolve barriers to implementation.
