Developing Your Research Question

Developing Your Research Question

What is a research question? How specific does it need to be? Does it effectively link the proposal background with the methods? The importance of a well-framed research question is paramount to the success of your study. Bring your ideas and join Dr. Jennifer Payne, Associate Professor, Department of Diagnostic Radiology at Dalhousie University, in this interactive session exploring the specificity of the research question and its place in a research proposal.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the need for a specific research question
  • Understand how the research question ties to the proposal literature/background
  • Understand how the research question ties to the proposal methods
  • Envision how the research question is the foundation for the study results

Recommended for: Members of the NS Research Community who are new to writing research proposals or funding applications, or who want to brush up on related skills. These sessions would be of most benefit to Early Career Investigators (PhDs, physicians, residents, fellows, other health care professionals, etc.) or research staff who are interested in learning more, assisting with, or are developing their own research studies.

In Person: RMU Multimedia Room, Room 114, Centre for Clinical Research, 5790 University Avenue, Halifax
