The second RCSLT Research Champion Workshop was packed full of opportunities to share projects and evidence-based practice initiatives and develop new contacts.

We were delighted that Professor Vicky Joffe, RCSLT Trustee for Research and Development, hosted and co-chaired the event along with Dr Emma Pagnamenta, RCSLT Research Manager. We also welcomed Dr Hazel Roddam, Reader in Allied Health Practice at the University of Central Lancashire, who jointly facilitated a workshop on mentorship and developing the role of a research champion.

Following feedback from last year, the day included a session on qualitative research and what it has to offer SLTs. Attendees had an opportunity to learn more about the Council for Allied Health Professions Research from its director, Professor Ann Moore CBE. Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders, Dr Steven Bloch, also attended to run a writing for publication surgery over the lunch break.
