Talking Research Guest Speaker: Dr Kelly-Ann Bowles
Research 101: Research basics and how to make sense of what you read
Do you read research papers? Ever had questions about different study designs and methodology? Ever been confused by statistical analysis? Do you often wonder what the results actually mean and how to interpret them? What about the quality of the paper; is it reliable, valid, transferable? Then this webinar is for you!
Dr Kelly-Ann Bowles will take you through the basics of research design, and how to read, analyse and interpret results, and draw your own conclusions. She will use examples from the paramedic profession to demonstrate some common appraisal tools and techniques.
Kelly is the Director of Research at the Department of Paramedicine, Monash University. Over the last 4 years she has taken her previous research successes as a Biomechanist and Exercise Scientist and has translated them into the field of Paramedicine. She has done this by reforming the research education her Department offers their students from undergraduate through to HDR programs; establishing successful national research teams including paramedics and multi-disciplinary research leaders; and developing international teams by working with both clinical and researchers worldwide.
Dr Linda Ross will host the inaugural 'Talking Research' webinar on behalf of the Australasian College of Paramedicine (ACP) Research Committee. Linda is the Deputy Chair of the Committee and ACP Fellow. She will host the webinar and facilitate discussion between the guest speaker and ACP members in attendance.
