Aims

The aim of RCBCWales is to increase the research capacity of nursing, midwifery, allied health professions and pharmacists in Wales and to contribute toward the development of clinical academic roles.

Objectives

  • To appoint research Fellows into a variety of funded research posts (including PhDs and Postdoctoral positions).
  • To collect and report on the Fellows’ progress throughout the duration of their research projects.
  • To create and maintain a Community of Scholars which aims to provide a supportive mechanism in order to:
    • Pool the intellectual capacity of nursing and allied health academics in Wales for the benefit of the RCBC Fellows;
    • Provide a supportive environment in which Fellows and academics meet regularly to discuss issues and share ideas particularly on methodological issues;
    • Provide a means to keep the motivation and progress of Fellows high leading to timely completion rates;
    • Accelerate the development of Fellows’ methodological and research leadership expertise as a means of ‘fast tracking’ future research leaders;
    • Provide a mechanism for mentorship and career guidance. 
  • To manage the scheme through a Managerial steering group and Operational group in order to:
    • Design a programme of work in keeping with current Welsh Government priorities for the NHS.
    • Contribute to the evidence base required for NHS Wales.
    • Ensure that the funds awarded to RCBC are used for the purposes intended.
    • Provide a forum for reporting the progress of individual Fellows.
