Interested in getting involved in paediatric neurodisability research? 

Following 2020/21 discussions with paediatric trainees and consultants, allied health professionals and psychologists, and The Neurodisability Community, BACD's executive committee and Strategic Research Group recognise that health professionals continue to have difficulties finding information about: how to get into research initially; how to do research when there is no time allocated in job plan; and how to establish themselves in research. The BACD SRG has offed to provide some guidance.

As a result BACD will be running two workshops in autumn 2021 aimed at all professionals working with disabled children and young people who are interested in starting their paediatric neurodisability research career, or developing it further. The workshops are:

‘Beginner’s guide’ is for anyone who is new to research in a NHS post with little research experience and who wants to know how to start and what the options and opportunities are.

‘I know the basics, what next?’ is for those with some experience of research and want to do more (for example, someone who has done some NHS research, or been a site PI)

So that we can plan the programme with your needs in mind and to address as many questions as possible, please do register your interest through the link below if you are curious about research, have an intention to undertake research in the future, or are currently doing research and want to know more. On the link you can ask your three key questions, and we will structure the programme around the responses. Once we have considered the submissions, we will finalise the date and programme for each workshop we will let you know further details.

The webinars are open to BACD members and non-members, and will be free to attend, please note that places will be limited. 

Register your interest

Please complete the form by 17 September 2021

Once we have finalised the programme and confirmed the dates, we will contact everyone who has registered an interest in the first instance. It is anticipated that each webinar will be a half day session.
