The focus of our research mentorship bursary this year was to support AHP clinicians to develop a plan for how they can undertake a systematic approach to service evaluation - for example, to measure the effectiveness and impact of a locally-developed pilot for a new service initiative.
The bursary comes from a grant awarded to the CAHPR Cumbria & Lancashire Regional Hub by the SHA to help us to develop the research capability of AHPs working in the region.
This supplemented our existing delivery of the research skills Masterclass workshops funded by a grant from the National Physiotherapy Research Network (NPRN).
The grant provides up to five 'mentorship bursaries' which are awarded by a competitive process.
Applications for this year's bursary are now closed, but please keep an eye on this page for future opportunities to take advantage of this scheme.
