As part of our first researching training event ‘resources for research’, the PROP project team produced an introductory handbook about the PROP project and key elements of the research planning process. This includes a self-audit for ethics clearance and guidance on creating a research proposal. There is a also a flowchart which outlines the key stages of the research process: Plan, Do, Analyse and Exchange.
This material is partially based on resources that were produced for previous practitioner-research programmes, in particular the Engaging with Involuntary Service Users in Social Work project which was carried out by The University of Edinburgh in 2010.
