A case study in research design using the consensus method 'Nominal Group Technique'.

Here is a case study about the first stages of an NHS research project and how it got funded by the National Institute for Health Research RDS case study Chailey Heritage Clinical Services PUBLIC version2

The case was written as part of the Review 2012 of NIHR’s RDS South East (that is the National Insitute of Health Research’s ‘Research Design Service’ for those of you uninitiated into this world!).  The case offers some encouragement to the would-be health and social care researcher. You can make great leaps and get research funded with a good idea if you’ve got a rigorous plan!  RDS can help you do this – get to them via the above link.
