Being a reflective practitioner is an important skill to have, but it doesn't always come naturally. It's an essential requirement for people in a variety of professions, particularly healthcare, where it plays an important role in decision making and patient care. For nurses undertaking revalidation, reflective writing is a key component of the process, but reflective writing is likely to be of relevance to those in other professions as well.

This interactive workshop will help you to understand the theory of reflective practice and how to translate this into your everyday role. It will provide tips for overcoming barriers to carrying out reflection and how to deal with feedback as well as offering a brief introduction to reflective writing.

There is an increasing emphasis in research on the management and sharing of data. Many funding bodies that support research undertaken at Cambridge require not only open access to any publications based on that research, but also to the data underlying it. This course will help you understand funders’ requirements for management and sharing of research data, and will provide opportunities to create your own data management plan and test out resources that will make the data management process easier.

Medicine: SSC 1 (For Year 4 clinical students only) new Wed 11 Dec 2019   09:00 [Places]

Your SSC will require that you find scientific literature in order to read around a topic, even if you're are not doing a systematic review as the eventual outcome. It is a great opportunity to gain Key Skills which will be valuable for your SSC, your Year 5 Paeds CAT, and the rest of your professional life.

This session will teach you how to search medical/healthcare databases effectively and efficiently, save and record literature search terms, and keep track of the results that you find.

Medicine: SSC 2 (For Year 4 clinical students only) new Wed 11 Dec 2019   09:00 [Places]

Your SSC will require that you find scientific literature in order to read around a topic, even if you're are not doing a systematic review as the eventual outcome. It is a great opportunity to gain Key Skills which will be valuable for the SSC, your Year 5 Paeds CAT, and the rest of your professional life.

This session will be a refresher in how to search medical/healthcare databases effectively and efficiently, save and record literature search terms, and keep track of the results that you find.

This is a course designed for students undertaking a systematic review for their SSC project. It will cover all aspects of the systematic review process: ensuring your database search is as comprehensive as possible (and knowing when to stop), how to manage the process and results of the systematic review, and how to save references and cite them effectively.

Before undertaking any piece of primary research it’s important to be aware of as much of the existing literature as possible. A systematic literature review can also be a research end in itself. And it’s not something to be taken lightly. But how can you be sure you’re being as rigorous as necessary? How can you manage the references you find, document the process, and also know when to stop searching?

This session assumes attendees have already had prior introductory training in literature searching. It is a prerequisite that you have attended either Introduction to Literature Searching (if you are a University of Cambridge staff member or student) or Getting the Best Results - Improving Your Database Searching (if you are an NHS staff member). Exceptions will be made if you received similar training from another department or university - please contact us if you have any questions about prerequisites.

One session - four medicine and life science databases - widest coverage for your literature search. PubMed is great, but it doesn't cover all the journals relevant to life sciences and medicine. Embase, Web of Science and Scopus can also be relevant and each covers unique material. Come to this hands-on session to learn how to get the best from each of these "4 tops".

This session is aimed at University of Cambridge staff or students who have already had prior training in database searching. Those who want to attend an introductory session should book onto the Introduction to Literature Searching course, or the Getting the Best Results - Improving Your Database Searching if they are NHS staff.
