Research Opportunities for Trainees
In collaboration with Professor Leavy
Director of the Bamford Centre University of Ulster and his team,
the Belfast Trust is taking part in the IMPACT study which
considers the transition of young people in CAMHS to Adult Mental
Health Services across the Belfast-SET CAMHS network.
In order to progress this study, we are
offering the opportunity for a number of trainees and mental health
interns (approximately 25 in total) to avail of research methods
training, including in SSPS, and potentially to be included in
future publications, in return for undertaking standardised
case notes review - the questionnaire has been developed and the
records will be located for you in advance. This exercise fulfils
some of the research requirements for annual NIMDTA trainee
review. Each case note review on average will take 1 hour.
The first of these training sessions will
take place from 9-12 midday on Friday 28th February (venue to be
confirmed, but most likely Elliott Dynes Education Centre opposite
RBHSC on the RVH site).

outline in advance.
For those of you able to take part in this
study and outside the Belfast Trust, honorary contracts can be
issued for the purposes of the research.
