BASHH Trainees Collaborative for Audit, Research and Quality Improvement Projects (T-CARQ)
BASHH T-CARQ is a collaborative led by trainees for trainees, which provides a forum where GUM trainees can design, lead and implement multi-centre research, audit and quality improvement projects.
About BASHH T-CARQ
This is a new sub-group of BASHH doctors in training that aims to provide a forum where genitourinary medicine trainees can design, lead and implement multi-centre research, audit and quality improvement projects. Individual projects usually have the same problem, insufficient numbers. Multi-centre projects increase the amount of data collected and therefore result in more meaningful (and publishable) results.
A core committee will exist to facilitate this collaborative and feedback to the BASHH board and the education committee. However, this is a collaborative for trainees and primarily is a way of facilitating trainees working together over multiple sites to complete and ultimately publish high quality audit, research and quality improvement projects. All those contributors will be included in the authorship or acknowledged (PubMed citable) depending on the level of contribution.
Through BASHH we will have access to specialist advice from the BASHH specialist interest groups who will be available to advise on and support individual, relevant projects when needed.
