Becky Cooper @beckycooper___
@caralawrence @OTalk_ All because of my amazing mentor and OT friend @caralawrence #OTalk
Nat Jones @natlouj
@LynneGoodacre #OTalk yes but getting time to do the application is a barrier.
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@_becsut @OTalk_ LOL #otfriend #Otalk
Tilly Greenwell @Tilly_OT
@LoganPip Last year I thought about applying this year for the CDRF but I felt wayyy too under experienced when I heard about the application process #OTalk
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
A few buffering probs tonight #OTalk so Q1 was has anyone thought of applying for NIHR clinical academic funding
OTalk @OTalk_
Just to remind everyone our first question is “ Have you applied r thought about applying for a personal award or project grant to NIHR? #OTalk
daphne @djdpix
@LoganPip Hi. I have been looking at these opps for some time. Do you have to have research experience to go for pre doc fellowship #OTalk
Lorna Wales @waleslorna
I'm supporting someone on an internship, She's loving it and taking the opportunity to do visits etc and MSc modules. She's doing more than the set 30 days #OTalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
Maybe we need to start with outcome measures as a profession which will lead gently into research #OTalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@LoganPip Honestly nope, but i only finished my pre-reg msc in november so keeping options open so far #otalk
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
Which were you thinking of @natlouj #Otalk https://t.co/wiR4lR9P6b
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@Tilly_OT @LoganPip They do bridging programs to the doctorate which sound helpful for this #otalk maybe worth looking into
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@LynneGoodacre Seems like I am going to be mostly lurking and retweeting today... since the topic is more UK based. #otalk
Carolina Cordero @colourful_ot
Probably won't be as involved in tonight's chat as usual since applying for research funding isn't a topic I know much about - great chance for me to lurk and learn though! #OTalk
Susi paden @susipaden
@OTalk_ @LoganPip No I haven’t but would like to know more #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ No - not applied or thought about it. AHPs at my trust have though (I’m sure) #OTalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
I think time is the biggest barrier #OTalk
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@BillWongOT @LynneGoodacre But Bill I am sure your thoughts on why we should be doing research are just as valid #Otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Pip if you can use #OTalk please instead of @OTalk, we all make this wee mistake. https://t.co/hVZ6HAAy6r
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
What would you like to know @SusiPaden #otalk https://t.co/O0ccBRh5or
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@caralawrence @LynneGoodacre True- probably just those thoughts... and in US we have NIH funding in terms of research $. #otalk
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@margaretOT360 Time is very true what the NHIR seems good with as they fund back fill #Otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
@Louisepenny87 And we're they successful? #OTalk
Tilly Greenwell @Tilly_OT
@caralawrence @LoganPip I'm planning on going down the professional doctorate route instead now. I've got a deferred place at Teesside but am currently in the process of applying to others to give the option of distance learning #OTalk
Bethan Mair Edwards @pixiegirle
@OTalk_ I erroneously thought we were not able to apply for one if we lived I wales - that’s why I didn’t apply for one! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@margaretOT360 Isn’t it for everything we WANT to do in OT? #otalk
Nat Jones @natlouj
@LynneGoodacre I completed the masters in clinical research which was a great opportunity and are now thinking about doctoral application #OTalk
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
Would you be interested #OTAlk. https://t.co/90AeNJXtC1
Maggie Ruth Morton @SensationalOT
Hey #Otalk. Glad to be here.15 minutes late. With no idea of the topic. #LongDayAtWork
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@OTalk_ So I am doing the CAIP course and would consider doing the PCAF #Otalk #research
Philippa Anne Logan @loganpip
I need a 16 year old to help #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Tilly_OT @caralawrence @LoganPip In the US... I have learned to never say never for these things. A good few friends have their clinical doctorates... and then to go to pursue a PhD in something a few years later. #otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
That's a good point. @LoganPip are they available for all four UK countries #OTalk https://t.co/9r6yELCAfT
Susi paden @susipaden
@LynneGoodacre Are there particular areas/priorities that they are willing to fund? #otalk
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
Great to be thinking about it now as many people leave it too late to do the preparation work #OTAlk. A common mistake is not leaving enough time https://t.co/rp0ueDc12h
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@Tilly_OT @LoganPip Ooooo well done! How do you to find these #Otalk
Kirstie @Kirstie_OT
@Tilly_OT @LoganPip The applications alone terrified me lol #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ Yes - regular updates are circulated about people’s projects and research #OTalk
Jenny Welford OT @jenny_welford
I have started the #NIHR DRF application and to be honest, I can see why OTs with little support are totally daunted by it. Very repetitive too #Otalk
Becky Cooper @beckycooper___
@natlouj @LynneGoodacre Hi Nat, would you recommend completing masters straight after studying or gaining work experience first? My university is offering masters placement straight after undergraduate study so just wondered what your views are? #OTalk
Minh Tran @otramblings
@LoganPip @OTalk_ #OTalk hi :) I haven’t applied and to be honest I was not aware of NIHR until tonight 🤦🏻‍♀️
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
So @caralawrence not everyone will understand the acronyms can you explain PCAF #otalk https://t.co/Acfj9F62V6
Kirstie @Kirstie_OT
@LoganPip It takes some getting used to, dont worry 👍🏼 #OTalk
Nat Jones @natlouj
@LynneGoodacre #OTalk I am thinking it will take about a year!
OTalk @OTalk_
Any learning so far you could share with us @HmillsMills @LoganPip #OTalk Research https://t.co/8kSGa2nUt6
Lorna Wales @waleslorna
The internship gives you the time to think about the next application? #OTalk
Minh Tran @otramblings
@SusiPaden @OTalk_ @LoganPip #OTalk me too
Bethan Mair Edwards @pixiegirle
@OTalk_ @LoganPip Not all NIHR grants are available in all 4 countries - but some are - it’s confusing! #OTalk
daphne @djdpix
@LynneGoodacre @LoganPip also is it possible to do masters simultaneously? Or indeed expected?#OTalk
Helle Mills @hmillsmills
#OTalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
I think gaining work experience then this can be the basis of some of your module assignment #OTalk https://t.co/PgqHXPwelv

@caralawrence @LoganPip Long hours of googling and following up with emails! I've made a spread sheet of the 7 I've found with all the important info now 🤓🙈 #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
So is this something you might think about now @otramblings @LoganPip #OTalk Research https://t.co/1u5unQ16dM
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@LynneGoodacre I am not sure I under stand them pre doctoral academic fellowship. Its at masters levels where you would be 50% clinical 50% study/research #Otalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@LynneGoodacre Potentially in the future. Need to get my MSc finished first! #OTalk
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
Not really these are personal awards. The research must have a direct impact of patient care but no specific priorities. The focus on you are your potential to become a lead Research is as important as the project #Otalk https://t.co/dY3v74LIfb
Bethan Mair Edwards @pixiegirle
@otramblings @LoganPip @OTalk_ I find that’s quite a common experience among clinicians who are not researchers. In wales we have HCRW & RCBC etc - there are too many acronyms! #OTalk
Tilly Greenwell @Tilly_OT

Maggie Ruth Morton @SensationalOT
Not successfully. So far, my most successful application has been for a scholarship to attend a mentorship. Learning from @DrLucyJMiller at @STARInst_SPD. Will definitely keep applying. #OTalk https://t.co/eQvbnF4gdR
Helle Mills @hmillsmills
@LoganPip #OTalk i was initially thinking of applying for pre doc but going to start with internship

@_becsut @LynneGoodacre #OTalk pros and cons Becky. Doing it early in your career would be a great opportunity especially if your thinking of a clinical academic career.

Question 2: Compared to other AHPs, occupational therapists are least likely to apply for NIHR research funding. Why do you think this is? @LoganPip #OTalk Research

@Tilly_OT I think it should be in all our appraisals as its part of the NHS constitution #Otalk

Philippa Anne Logan @loganpip
We get a lot of physios and dieticians applying for the intern and doctoral awards, I wonder why not OTs? #OTalk
Nat Jones @natlouj
@OTalk_ @HmillsMills @LoganPip #Otalk internships are a great opportunity to develop research ideas for the NIHR awards. I have two physios on internships and hope to get an OT on one this year. They have provided experience, development and building connections. Would advocate this as a starting place.

likely because of all of the challenges that being a less well definite profession brings -probably EXACTLY why we should be researching (though it’s difficult to convince work of the value of stepping out of clinical roles when they attempt to meet commissioning targets) #OTalk https://t.co/ce2fD55GrD

@OTalk_ @LoganPip Since it is a US based advice... I will say if you are interested in research as a student, know the opportunities around you in your country and get mentors. #otalk
Deborah Harrison @DebbiiHarrison
That’s why we aim to teach evidence-based practice, reading & appraising papers at UG level. But maybe we should do more to help people to DO research? We can’t do everything I guess? Hopefully some inspiration gets through 😊💚 #OTalk https://t.co/Y2NTmGJaLt

@DebbiiHarrison I also think the service improvement was a good route as you can almost do research within it #Otalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@WalesLorna True, which is why it needs to be more integrated in to practice. It’s needs to be “normal” not something different / extra / special #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Louisepenny87 @DebbiiHarrison @UEA_Health I do settle in my setting pretty quickly... probably after 6 months. I got a rapid learning curve early by locumming. Now I just have to deal with nuances in the setting occasionally as well as adjustments to change of workplaces. #otalk

@WalesLorna Yes, like actors between bookings, being between grants does mean some workplace stability needed. #otalk securing a grant should be win-win for dept and individual OT
Catherine McNulty @cathymc9781
@pixiegirle @OTalk_ @LoganPip #Otalk isnt there quantative research around how occupatonal therapists R helping to enable people to stay@ home instead of being admitted to hospital now that is interesting & cost saving very number crunching but also qualiatative mayb we need to focus on mixed method research
Annabel Rule @annabelrule
@Louisepenny87 @WalesLorna Definitely - this is why journal clubs, audits, QI, evidence searching and robust in-service training programmes are crucial to foster those research and analytical skills so it’s not seen as such a gulf #otalk

@niinamk @LoganPip I must be odd! I loved research from yr1 of my undergrad degree. Was always my focus despite few opportunities). Loved OT philosophy, but the lack of evidence base to much of AHP practice (compared to Medicine & psychology) was source of frustration & a challenge.... #otalk
