The PRON Programme, is a unique 2 day residential workshop for nurses interested in increasing their skills, knowledge and confidence in clinical research related to lung cancer.  Run by experts in health and nursing research the workshop:

  • provides an introduction to identifying, justifying, shaping and communicating a research question
  • explores why research is important at a personal and organisational level
  • helps you to develop a greater understanding of what it means to be part of a research community
  • increases your understanding of developing your personal networks 

The workshop is designed to be highly interactive.  It will help you develop your research knowledge and ideas in a stimulating and supportive environment.  The workshop includes formal lectures from leading experts in nurse-led research, interactive sessions, as well as dedicated time for you to spend working in small groups with faculty members.

The longer term aim of the programme is to build a community of research interested and active clinical nurses, supported by the mentorship and expertise of nursing and health services research academics.  We hope to run an annual top-up day and all previous participants will be invited to attend.
