Research Seminars

The research team are running a series of Research Seminars, which is currently showcasing the Phd research of our most recently qualified doctors. The seminars aim to highlight research carried out by school staff and our external colleagues, with a focus on health and social care.

The winter – spring session kicked off in mid-December with Dr Steve Smith presenting his PhD study in a talk entitled ‘Solution Focus: What is it good for?’ He eloquently led the audience through his study of the use of solution focused brief therapy by nurses, and enthused with his thoughts on being immersed in the research process.  The resulting discussion with the audience could have gone on all night.  Readers may view Steve’s presentation by clicking this link:

The seminar series continues in February with Dr Heather Bain presenting her work on the unique knowing of district nurses : https://nursingmidwiferyrgu.wordpress.com/2017/01/24/research-seminar-series-the-development-of-unique-knowing-in-district-nursing-practice/.

Heather’s session will also be available to view in this blog by the end of February. But, if you would like to come along to this session in person then all you need to do is contact Heather Nicolson h.nicolson@rgu.ac.uk.

The seminars run between 4-5pm and are usually on a Monday or Tuesday. Come along for tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits beforehand and be prepared to have your enthusiasm for research lit or rekindled.

The University of Central Lancashire and Robert Gordon University are delighted to invite you to attend the following:

A four-day Hermeneutic Phenomenology Methodology Course (3-6th April, 2017) aimed at postgraduate research students, researchers and academics working within health and social care areas who are new/novices in this theoretical and methodological approach.  During the course, participants will receive an introduction to, and beginning experience in, designing hermeneutic phenomenology studies, collecting and analysing data, and reporting themes, qualities and patterns.  (Please note this event includes a three-day methodology course and attendance at the one-day symposium detailed below)

A one-day Hermeneutic Phenomenology Symposium (6th April, 2017) aimed at postgraduate research students, researchers and academics working within health and social care. This is an exciting opportunity to listen to experienced researchers who have used a hermeneutic phenomenological approach to a) highlight some of the challenges in undertaking this type of study and b) to demonstrate how philosophical concepts can be applied to illuminate meaning within health and social care related research projects. A panel discussion will also be held to provide opportunities for further questioning and elaboration.
