NHS Research & Development North West Annual Conference

Let’s Talk Research 2015

17th and 18th September 2015, Macron Stadium, Bolton (Reebok Stadium

Following the success of Let’s Talk Research 2014, the 2015 conference was held over 2 days giving healthcare professionals even more opportunities to hear and discuss research, learn new tools and techniques and engage with fellow researchers.

There was an evident energy and buzz throughout the 2 days – a common occurrence when researchers come together! The energy levels heightened at certain points. in particular, following the Plenary by Helen Bevan on day 1 when she discussed ‘The change agents of the future: curating knowledge and making connections”. A presentation that stimulated, inspired, thought-provoked and rebelled!!

With over 24 workshops delivered by leading researchers, academics and clinicians, the delegates were able to experience a whole range of research topics. This was supported by a schedule of workshops focusing on improving the ‘softer skills’ and more real-life aspects of research.
