Lessons learned from a failed research project

  • Girish Vaidya (a1)
Extract

There has been a significant emphasis on research experience in the years of specialist registrar training (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1998). It has also been acknowledged that in reality many specialist registrars find it difficult to start a research project and complete it within the 3 years of specialist registrar training (Allsopp et al, 2002). There have been various suggestions about how the ‘research day’ can be used more gainfully – in acquiring skills in evidence-based medicine (Ramchandani et al, 2001); or in preparing to be a consultant.
