Abstract

On occasion midwives may be required to construct a research proposal. In the current climate of evidence-based practice. Such activity is considered an elemental skill for career progression in both education and service. Examples of where writing a research proposal may be required include: writing an assessment for under and post graduate research modules or designing a dissertation, MPhil, Prof Doc or PhD. Within clinical practice there are also audit and evaluation of practice responsibilities. With these factors at the forefront, this article provides a template specifically designed to direct midwives through the procedures of constructing a research proposal. The purpose of a research proposal is to produce a template of common understanding from which tasks are allocated, divided and discussed by researchers, clinical staff and in some cases participants. The finished product is then used to communicate intent to the ethics committees and grant funding bodies before authorization and money are awarded.
