Join a research project
Research projects are likely to be happening in the organisation you are currently working in. Investigate, and take the time to map them out. If you are currently on a course, your lecturers may well be connected to studies which are happening. Let people know what you are interested in. There are likely to be opportunities for you to assist on a trial and get important insights about the ways in which research actively links to improving services, interventions and patient care.
“You learn a lot about research processes just by becoming involved in existing research projects.”
– Martin Webber, Professor of Social Work
