Abstract

Child health research is considered essential to paediatric training. However, due to service provision demands and workforce planning, research capacity within paediatric consultant contracts is declining[1]. This affects paediatric trainees who perceive lack of leadership in this domain. Considering these concerns, in 2021 the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) established the Trainee Research Network (TRN) to support regional research. To broadly evaluate trainee participation in research as a marker of future UK research capacity, we conducted a national survey of trainees’ experiences to help identify the breadth of research involvement and to identify barriers and facilitators to participation.
