As a recipient of the Leonie Sidebottom study grant in 2017, Cindy was able to attend a course – Foundations of Qualitative Methodologies, Data Collection and Analysis run by The Australian Consortium for Social & Political Research Inc.

The course consisted of a 5 day program that included practical sessions that focused on qualitative research styles and design, data collection techniques such as interviewing and conducting focus groups, data analysis and management, interpretation and display of data.

Cindy says “The knowledge and practical skills gained by attending this course have consolidated my knowledge in this area and have assisted me to conduct my research project on the Role of the Intensive Care Nurse in the Medical Emergency Team (MET).”

She added “I am grateful to the Committee for supporting me to undertake this course and look forward to completing my own research project by the end of 2020.”
