Research consultation service
ANZCA Knowledge Resources has begun a pilot for a new Research Consultation Service until the end of 2021, which aims to develop and deliver research services to fellows, trainees, college staff and other key college stakeholders.
A key goal of the research consultation service is to facilitate the translation of research-based evidence about anaesthesia, pain medicine and perioperative medicine into policy and practice.
The research librarian will be involved in:
- Conducting literature searches (and producing evidence summaries), as well as advising on the literature review process.
- Responding directly to queries related to the conduct of research, as well as helping to guide emerging investigators through the research lifecycle and full utilisation of the Research Support Toolkit.
- Teaching academic literacy skills through activities like online webinars and participation in key workshops.
- Collaborating with the Safety and Advocacy unit in the creation and review of professional documents.
The new research librarian is Kathryn Rough, who is available on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Research-related literature searches should be submitted using the Request a Literature Search form on the library website (and selecting Purpose = Research) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
