Location: NHS Tees Valley CCG
Available Spaces: 17
Contact Details: OD Events: email@example.com
The plan is to deliver these sessions face to face in the Board Room but if this is not possible due to social distancing rules, they will be delivered online
This session is aimed at staff who need to use evidence in their role, and need a working knowledge of the different types of evidence and research studies in order to appraise the evidence they find. e.g. when commissioning services, evaluating services. This session is an ideal precursor to “Finding Evidence” and “Appraising Evidence”.
This session is also suitable for those who want to develop a research idea and decide on the best research design for their study.
The session will cover:
- What is evidence, how does it fit into the commissioning cycle and current NHS policies
- Different types of evidence, to include audit, grey literature and the media
- The difference between qualitative and quantitative research
- Types of research designs, from case studies to randomised control trials, and whether one type is better
- Papers that summarise other papers: systematic reviews and meta-analyses
- The role of the Research and Evidence team and how they can support you
