Welcome to the HEALER Research Toolkit

 

 

This toolkit is intended to help librarians in the health sector to carry out research from small-scale, local service evaluation through to much more formal research.   The toolkit is intended as a starting point for those wishing to undertake a research project, highlighting issues to consider and signposting resources to help you get started.


The Toolkit
 
The toolkit leads you in ten manageable steps through the research process.  The ten steps are:

 

Step 1: Turn Your Ideas Into a Research Question
Step 2: Review the Literature
Step 3: Design the Study and Develop Your Methods
Step 4: Writing Your Proposal for Formal Research
Step 5: Issues About Funding
Step 6: Obtain Ethical and Trust Approval
Step 7: Collect and Collate the Data
Step 8: Analyse the Data and Interpret Findings
Step 9: Implications of Your Research for Practice and Identify How Findings Can Be Put Into Practice
Step 10: Report on the Study and Disseminate Findings
