These pages are designed to support members who would like to run their own practice-based projects. By sharing and showcasing the work achieved by members, with some practical top-tips on how you can do the same, we hope to cultivate a community of practice-based researchers and nurture the application of an evidence-based approach to practice.

The case studies collated here will provide an opportunity for members to share their projects but also an opportunity for others to learn from their experiences. We are looking for members' examples of how you can collect robust measures, employ control groups, and investigate clinical effectiveness in your everyday caseload. We will also showcase members' projects including audits, service evaluations and quality improvement projects.

Please see the guidance section if you would like to contribute your own case study.
