PCRS Research Lead, Dr Helen Ashdown,
Clinical Research Fellow, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford
Some may see PCRS as a primarily clinical society, but it has a strong heritage in research, setting up the first chair in primary care respiratory medicine at Aberdeen University in 2000, and developing a leading primary care academic journal now published as npj Primary Care Respiratory Medicine.
Sharing ideas and resources
PCRS Support for external research projects
Several times a year we send out a research newsletter (current editor Ann Hutchinson), which features news, a rolling ‘Spotlight on…’ series about different centres for primary care respiratory research, and information about funding opportunities and conferences which may be of interest. Articles will be saved longer term on the research pages of the PCRS website. Please do get in touch if you would like to write a short article, share your research and news, or feature in our ‘Spotlight on…’ series in future!
2019 PCRS Respiratory Conference
We welcome both quantitative and qualitative research across the spectrum, from systematic reviews and database studies through to clinical trials and implementation studies. Abstracts on work in progress and study protocols are also welcome - providing an opportunity to receive feedback which can still impact the direction of a study. Submission closes 30th June 2019.
Bursaries available on first come, first served basis, to help with travel, accommodation and conference attendance are available for early career researchers submitting an abstract and who haven’t attended before - contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
