Research taking place at the trust will benefit babies, mums and staff.
Clinical research is of vital importance to the development of better health and care for Walsall mothers and babies, as well as to the professional improvement of doctors, nurses, midwives and health professionals.
To help support this research Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust’s Faculty of Research and Clinical Education (FORCE) will be holding a maternity roadshow.
It will be an informal display with numerous stalls from various teams involved with research and trials at the Trust. These include the FORCE Team, NIHR Clinical Research Network West Midlands and Royal College of Midwives (RCM) research team as well as members of the teams conducting the ongoing trials within the maternity unit. RCM and Unison will also be represented on the day.
Clinical Academic Link Tutor/Midwife within the FORCE team, Helen Haden is hosting the event and said: “The purpose of this roadshow is to highlight the research work and trials that are currently ongoing in the maternity unit. It is also to raise the profile of clinical research to clinicians.
She added: “Everyone and anyone with an interest in research can attend whether you are a patient or a clinician. It would be great for you to get an insight on what research is, how it is important to maternity services and how you can get involved.”
The maternity roadshow will be held on Wednesday 2 February, 11am-2pm in the antenatal clinic atrium at Walsall Manor Hospital.
