Requirement Compulsory

Module objective

By the end of the training period trainees will, in respect of research, development and innovation, be able to:

  • analyse, synthesise, evaluate and apply knowledge
  • perform, adapt and master a range of technical and clinical skills and procedures
  • demonstrate the attitudes and behaviours necessary for professional practice as a consultant clinical scientist dealing with the complexities, uncertainties and tensions of professional practice at this level.

Knowledge and understanding

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate the ability to analyse, evaluate and synthesise relevant knowledge and its application to their professional practice in relation to:

  • the principles of critical review.
  • how statistical methods are used to describe datasets, how agreement can be assessed, how confidence intervals are constructed.
  • methods for assessing the utility of tests
  • the steps to be taken in planning a research and development project
  • research governance and the steps to be taken to conduct and supervise a valid research and development project
  • planning a research and development project
  • research governance and the steps to be taken to conduct and supervise a valid research and development project
  • the regulatory requirements including the research governance framework, ethical framework, intellectual property that must be considered in the area of study
  • the results of a research and development project, draw conclusions in the correct clinical context, where appropriate, use them to plan follow up research and development
  • how to critically appraise the results of a research and development project, draw conclusions in the correct clinical context. Where appropriate, use them to plan follow up research and development
  • how research and development findings can be reported and communicated to peers and other interested parties
  • how to translate successful research findings into service in the interests of patient care.
  • the variety of ways in which research and development findings can be reported and communicated to peers and other interested parties
  • the steps required to translate successful research findings into service in the interests of patient care.
  • the principles involved in:
    • planning research projects
    • requirements and procedures for gaining ethical approval
    • research governance
    • good clinical practice
    • data analysis
    • data presentation and dissemination
  • the type of research and development:
    • original research
    • translational research
    • innovative service development
    • identify potential opportunities for R&D funding.

Technical and clinical skills

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of current relevant research, theory and knowledge and its application to the performance, adaptation and mastery of the following skills to:

  • how to undertake a critical appraisal of literature.
  • how to critique a published research paper
  • translate successful research findings into service and provide examples of where this has been achieved.
  • plan a research and development project
  • conduct and/or supervise a valid research and development project
  • critically appraise the results of a research and development project, draw conclusions in the correct clinical context, and, where appropriate, use them to plan follow up research and development
  • the regulatory requirements including the research governance framework, ethical framework, intellectual property that must be considered in the area of study.
  • use of a variety of ways in which research and development findings has been reported and communicated to peers and other interested parties
  • translate successful research findings into service and provide examples of where this has been achieved.
  • produce research proposals which conform with legislation, local and national requirements
  • select and performs statistical analyses appropriate to the research question
  • prepare reports of R&D studies in the format of presentations, abstracts and or papers
  • evaluate literature and commercial developments to generate a research and development strategy

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to apply knowledge of research, development and innovation to perform, adapt and master the clinical skills necessary to:

  • liaise fully with clinical colleagues and explain the impact of new innovations and research findings to them.
