This 2-day workshop is designed to take researchers from a research question to a complete study protocol. It is aimed at newer researchers who have a good understanding of evidence-based practice and study design, and are now ready to design their own research project. Study designs suitable to bring to this workshop include randomised trials, cohort studies (prospective or retrospective), case-control studies, and surveys.

During this workshop participants will:

  • Learn how to develop a research question using the PICO framework.
