research methods

Review that describes the development of research governance arrangements in social care settings over the past decade and examines some of the consequences – both problems and opportunities – created for people who are interested in research: that is, people who undertake research, take part in it, and use it within adult social care settings.

Developing research methods is central to the EPPI-Centre’s work. The EPPI-Centre's Methods for Synthesis (MRS) programme is one of five nodes of the ESCR’s National Centre for Research methods (NCRM). The MRS programme develops methodology in research synthesis and builds capacity by offering training and support. This topic is included in the EPPI-Centre knowledge library. The Knowledge Pages facility enables users to search for the key messages within specific subject areas to which EPPI-Centre reviews have contributed.
