Research for All 2014 Research and Development Event

R&D eventResearch and Development welcomed over 180 AWP and NHS staff, public members, local researchers, academics and managers to its annual Research and Development Event held at Chippenham Town Hall on November 13th.

This was a day packed with workshops, presentations, discussions and keynote speakers celebrating a wide variety of projects and involvement in research.

R&D Director Julian Walker said 'Since our conference last year the R&D department has grown both in staff numbers and our research portfolio. We are delighted to welcome many new members and collaborators to our expanding team.'

The event was a chance to hear about what research has been going on over the last year, why research is so important in clinical practice and about changes in research networks.

There was also the opportunity to hear feedback from people who have been involved in research including a short film featuring service users and carers talking about their personal experiences of being involved in research in AWP.  To view this powerful film, click here

As well as the presentations and workshops, there was a competition for the best poster.  The winner was Hannah Toogood for her poster on 'Increasing opportunities for patients with learning disability to participate in research'
