QNI Community Nursing Research Forum

The QNI Community Nursing Research Forum are hosting six BiteSize Research Masterclasses for community nurses, one a month, until May. The first three are confirmed and all the masterclasses are open to all community nurses interested in research, not just members of the Forum. They are likely to be booked fairly rapidly.

The first three confirmed classes are as follows:


14th December 2022 – Value of research for patients and community nursing with Professor Alison Leary

At the masterclass, Professor Alison Leary will discuss some of the research she has led with the QNI International Community Nursing Observatory (ICNO) and its impact, including key research into the experiences of care home staff during Covid-19. Alison will cover how community nurses can contribute or get involved in research: as participants, collaborating in research or being active users of evidence.
