Collaboration: Working with the University of Winchester on BPH Research

Unfortunately we've had to postpone this event, but we are rescheduling for the new year. Please register if you are interested, and we will send you the updated details.

Prof Richard Hindley, Dr Margaret Husted, Dr Debra Gray and Dr Sarah Golding present their research on Quality of Life and Treatment Decision-Making in People Living With Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. They will discuss how their collaboration between the university researchers and the hospital came about, and what each party bought to the project.   

This is one of the projects being undertaken in collaboration with the University of Winchester, and we would like to encourage any other researchers/clinicians thinking of a similar project to get in touch.

Join us, and our Associate Clinical Directors to discuss what this new role is, and how it can help to support the development of research within divisions and specialities.  

We are also going to discuss what a ‘speciality lead’ could look like, and the finances of research – how could money be returned to your department through research collaboration?

We would particularly like to invite clinical directors, and OSMs to attend, however this is open to all who have an interest in the closer integration of research activity within our clinical divisions.

We’re launching our Research Champions scheme – a way for us to form mutually beneficial links with all departments and wards around the Trust who help us to support research activity.

We’d like to invite anyone to take up the role of research champion who is interested. We’ll be having regular meetings to let you know what’s going on in the research world, and we’ll ask you to be a point of contact within your team for the research team.  

If you’re interested in knowing more, whether for yourself, or as a team leader, please pop along to this first meeting and help us to shape this role.
