Some of the incredible work happening locally in the field of research was highlighted at NHS Forth Valley’s recent Research Prize Day. It emphasised the importance of embedding clinical research into core NHS services and highlighted how this can be achieved.
The day was arranged by members of our Research and Development Committee, with support from The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSG). Guest speakers emphasised how we can do more to facilitate good quality research and support positive changes to ensure that research is seen as part of our core business going forward.
Our Research team would like to thank everyone who participated and to RCPSG for providing the day’s prizes. There were a number of fantastic presentations on locally-led projects and a number of poster displays. Congratulations to:
Research Prize: Dr Leona Cunningham from Adult Psychological Therapies for her randomised controlled trial on the effects of green exercise interventions on the psychological well-being of NHS clinicians
Runner-up: Dr Zack Slevin from Trauma and Orthopaedics for his cadaveric work on an easy technique to administer a nerve block for the shoulder joint.
Poster Prize: Dr Eliza Gimson from Acute Medicine for her work on the management of acute kidney injury within the Acute Assessment Unit.
