Are you having difficulty with any of the following:
1) Fulfilling your curriculum requirements for research?
2) Networking with colleagues and getting linked with suitable pain-related research projects?
3) Gathering knowledge on how to get your own research project off the ground?
4) Wanting to work collaboratively with other specialties and professionals but not sure how to go about it?
5) Wanting to get involved in national or multi-center projects and not sure how to navigate the structures?
The Pain Train National Research Day is a free one day online program endorsed by the Faculty of Pain Medicine aimed at answering those questions and taking you further along the path to fulfilling your training goals. (Program outline below).
This program is designed with the anaesthetic trainee in mind but trainees at any stage of training from Anaesthesia, Pain Medicine, Palliative Care, Neurosurgery, Rheumatology may find it of benefit.
Book via the link to the event. Bookings will be taken via Eventbrite. The day will be delivered over Microsoft Teams.
After significant interest newly qualified consultants are also welcome to attend.
The event is now accredited by the Royal College of Anaesthetists for 5 CPD Credits
