The motivation for Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) to become active in research has never been so strong. Engagement in research enables AHPs to lead research which impacts clinical practice and improves patient care.
These top ten tips represent an accessible overview of how to become research active and highlight some of the barriers and enablers to research activity. The tips are written by research active AHPs, some of whom are currently undertaking doctoral studies or have recent experience of successfully completing a doctorate in clinically related research.
There are many ways to get involved in research and there is no ‘right’ way of doing this. View and download the top tips here: CAHPR top tips: Becoming Research Active
