Realising the Potential of Health and Care Research in
Wales: From Ideas to Impact
Thursday, 16th May 2019, The Assembly Room, Cardiff City Hall
9.30am to 2.00pm
This event is being hosted by the RCBC Wales Fellows. The Research Capacity Building Collaboration (RCBC) Wales has over the last 13 years contributed to increasing the capacity and capability of nursing, midwives, and allied health professional groups and to the development of clinical academic roles. In 2014, its scope was broadened to include pharmacists. The collaboration comprises six university nursing and allied health departments in Wales which cooperate to provide shared infrastructure and support for research fellowships across the research trajectory, from First into Research opportunities, Master’s degrees, doctoral and postdoctoral studies, to a senior health career research fellowship.
RCBC Wales will fund up to eight First into Research (FiR) Fellowships
RCBC Wales will fund the First into Research Fellowships for one day a week for 12 months. The Fellowships are targeted at newcomers to research or those wishing to develop confidence in research, to work on projects seeking answers to questions relevant to Nursing, Midwifery, the Allied Health Professions and Pharmacists in the specified fields. Projects must be achievable in the timescale and may cover a wide spectrum of activity ranging from institutional strategies to more discrete individual research. Read more
