Hi New Practitioners!
Where has 2018 gone? Can you believe that it is already October? Many of you are in the weeds of residency and others are just getting settled from orienting to new roles, or maybe you are orienting new learners to your institution and to your rotation. You may be knee deep in your residency research project or you may be starting to look at research opportunities at your new institution. Either way, ASHP provides research resources for you through the New Practitioners Forum Pharmacy Research Resource Center, such as:
- Residency Research Tips: Practical advice to help you successfully tackle your research project with topics from timeline development and the Institutional Review Board process to power calculations and statistical analysis.
- Research Fundamentals: A series of AJHP articles for new investigators to help you conduct quality research.
- Essentials of Practice-Based Research for Pharmacists: Presentations to provide you with foundational knowledge and considerations for designing and completing a practice-based research project.
Keep in mind that the research process does not end once your project is completed. It is vital for you to share your findings in order to add to the growing body of pharmacy literature and advance the profession of pharmacy. On the Pharmacy Research page you can find advice on Publishing your residency project and tips for a successful poster presentation. In addition, the ASHP Foundation offers several practice based research grants specifically available to New Practitioners.
Enjoy the month of October!
