The NIHR Incubator for Clinical Education Research is leading work to collaboratively set national priorities for research into the education and training of health and social care professionals. Providing a timely evidence base in this area will improve healthcare delivery for ultimate patient benefit. We hope you will be able to contribute to this work.
This exercise is in two parts:
1. An on-line survey to identify stakeholders’ ideas for areas of unmet need in clinical education research. This will be a two-part ‘Delphi’-like exercise. The first part is available here, and should take around 15 minutes to complete.
2. An in-person event, to be held at Friends House in central London on Wednesday 5th October to review survey findings and consider how priority areas can be funded, communicated and findings implemented in order to achieve sustainable benefits. Professor Waljit Dhillo (Dean of NIHR Academy) and Professor Dame Jane Dacre (Chair of the UKMED Advisory Board) will speak at this event. The online survey provides an opportunity to express interest in attending, or you can contact us directly to register interest.
If you know of others in your organisation whose views should be included, please do forward this message.
We are also keen to include patient and public perspectives in this exercise, and have a version of the survey designed for lay contributors available here. Please forward this link to any groups or individuals associated with your organisation.
On behalf of the Incubator network, thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you.
