15 Now you are done with the registrations and training. What is next? 1/20/2014NNMC Research Guide15

16 Next steps: 4-5 The entire research writing process can be divided into easily manageable and clear steps: STEP 4: Develop a Research Question Select a topic Find Sources to support your ideas STEP 5: Research Protocol Preparation: Literature Review Start Writing Statistical Analysis Complete Detailed Study Protocol STEP 6: Submit your proposal via 1/20/2014NNMC Research Guide16

17 Step 4: Research topic selection Cue Card Reference: In order to do that you need to consult with your Department Chair/Supervisor/Mentor. Need help to choose your Mentor? Please contact Dr. Marina Borovok at /20/2014NNMC Research Guide17

18 Good research question: could the "FINER" criteria be applied to it? F- Feasible. Is the question answerable? Do you have access to all the materials you will need to do the study? Do you have access to enough subjects? Will you have enough time and money? Do you have the expertise to do this study or can you collaborate with someone who does? I- Interesting. The question has to be interesting to the investigator, but should also be interesting to others. N- Novel. Has this study been done before? Does it add to the current body of medical knowledge? E- Ethical. Risk/benefit ratio? Can the study be done with a minimal risk? Will an IRB approve the study? R- Relevant. Will it further medical science? Will the results change clinical practice, health policy or point towards further avenues of research? If your question fails on any one of these 5 criteria, it is probably not worth putting much effort into. Additional reading: Appendix 3
