1st PRESENTATION (at 12noon):

Title: “Improving the Consenting Process: An Audit of Coronary Procedures”
This presentation will provide an overview of a small audit that was conducted by two of our SJG junior medical officers and how they went about translating the results of their study to practical improvements in the consenting process for coronary procedures within SJGHC.

Dr Emily Clarke, Medical Registrar, RPH

2nd PRESENTATION (at 1.00pm):

Title: “How to design your studies to improve the calibre of health research and the tools designed to help you”
This educational session aims to provide researchers with the information and tools required to design studies which have high methodological quality. Unfortunately in health research we see a lot of effort go into recruiting for trials, gathering data and preparing a manuscript only to see it rejected when submitted for publication due to methodological flaws. Subsequently, this results in poor translation of knowledge and criticism of results by the scientific community. This session will cover the tools which can assist researchers when developing the following types of research; diagnostic/ prognostic studies, case reports/ series, observations studies, randomised studies and systematic reviews.
