Fostering a Culture of Research in Children's Critical Care

Wednesday, March 24, 2021

Developing the scientific basis of paediatric critical care depends on high quality, relevant and robust research. The Paediatric Critical Care is a relatively small specialty field, compared with adult critical care and neonatology. The challenges of generating evidence for practice, while ensuring the voice of children and families is heard has led to innovative methodologies being increasingly explored. Through this webinar featuring Dr Joseph C Manning, we will consider the value of nursing research in Children's Critical Care, novel methodologies used, and the importance of Public and Patient Involvement.
