Description:
A survey was conducted to profile the research activity of Health and Social Care Professionals (HSCPs), their research skills, and their preferences for developing their research capacity. The current research sought to advance upon our 2011 survey by gaining a larger and more representative sample of HSCPs and by obtaining more in-depth data on the experiences and opinions of HSCPs. The survey developed examined HSCPs’ level of research activity and skills, and the perceived enablers and barriers to research. This survey was hosted online using the website LimeSurvey. An email requesting participation with a link to the online survey was sent to Health Service Executive (HSE) Internal Communications who forwarded this email onto all HSE staff. The email was also sent onto the chairs of HSCP professional bodies and Managers Group for distribution, as well as a range of HSE-funded organisations. A total of 1,325 HSCPs completed the survey, representing 8.4% of the 15,844 HSCPs in Ireland. Within the last two years, 40.7% of the sample indicated that they were research active. A higher proportion of research active participants was observed at the more specialist grades of the health service. Research active participants were involved with a median of 2 projects at the time of the survey and most spent less than 10% of their work time engaged in research. Approximately a third of projects sampled were part of a service evaluation (34.2%) and a similar proportion were part of an academic degree (34.1%). A minority of projects were funded (18.8%) and over half involved collaboration with another researcher (58%).
