Foster collaborations across primary care and education research to strengthen methodological approaches.



Brief introduction to the session, work of the educational research SIG and panel members

Each doctoral presentation will last 10 minutes. Presenters will outline which elements they would welcome feedback about (e.g. research questions; epistemological framework; method; analysis)

Each presentation will be followed by a 20 minute discussion with the cross-disciplinary invited panel and audience.

To finish, there will be a 15 minute structured discussion about ‘next steps’ for educational research in primary care and how the SIG can further support this field at both regional and national level.
