Professional development in R&D: defining and resourcing a scheme to support healthcare professionals in learning how to use evidence and do research

The clinical governance agenda prioritises staff development as one key factor in the improvement of healthcare services. This paper describes a scheme designed to support healthcare professionals in learning about research and in applying these newskills within their professional roles to develop health services. The contribution of the original phase of the scheme is described as is the definition of the new scheme (PEARL – Practitioner Enterprise Awards in Research and Learning). The new scheme reflects national recommendations for development across the service/academic boundary and its definition has required explicit acknowledgement of the different policy drivers impacting on the organisations involved.
