Spotlight on Research

02/07/2020

 

There are a few changes going on in the research infrastructure within the College and as part of this I am keen to get our two directories up and running. There will be more news soon about some exciting research related opportunities!

A) Database of people with research expertise. 
This is going to help me get more people involved in the research and development activities of the College of Paramedics. For example, if I  get requests from members or external organisations who might be looking for assistance and/or advice from experts, then I will know who to contact. Hopefully in the next few months we can also utilise this information to increase the networking between members who are involved in research activities at a variety of different levels.

Please email me at Julia.williams@collegeofparamedics.co.uk if you want to find out more about this.

B) Database of research projects. 
We have been asked to develop a database of research projects related to our profession so that people can see what is already underway to: 
a) avoid duplication and 
b) to let people know who is running these studies in case people want to get additional information around these topics. 
It is intended that this database will be open public access so that people external to the organisation can also utilise this resource.

Please email me at Julia.williams@collegeofparamedics.co.uk if you want to find out more about this.

C) Small grants for research
Don’t forget that this round of applications closes on September 20th 2020. Click here for more information.  

D) 3D- Max Face Mask (3D-MFM) Project 
Are you interested in providing feedback about the use of PPE for a research study  being run by a group of clinical and engineering researchers based across the University of Cambridge and Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. Their aim is to design the next generation of FFP3 masks for healthcare workers. If so follow one of this link

I hope to hear from some of you soon.

Thank you
