Welcome to the Building Research Capacity Workbook.

This resource has been compiled by The Peregrine Centre and is designed to be utilised whilst you complete your Small Grants Application.  These are offered as part of the Rural Mental Health Partnership, a grant from NSW Health given over a 5 year period which seeks to transform rural mental health practice in NSW through training and research activities.

All grant documents are above, however we strongly recommend taking the time to look through this free workbook.

This workbook will step you through different aspects to consider when designing a research project, and applying for a research grant. While it is designed to support your Small Project Grant application, this workbook can help you think about and conduct better research within your organisation.

This workbook is not compulsory, however we recommend going through it as it talks about specific things the grant panel is looking for in applications. The workbook has been designed to allow you to click through at your own direction.
If you're interested in building your research capacity, absolutely! Within this workbook is information and extra resources about how to plan, design, and conduct a research study. If you're interested in dipping your toe into the research waters, this is a great place to start.
The Peregrine Centre have created this workbook in response to our conversations with clinicians who had great ideas about practice improvements, but little knowledge about how to appropriately research these improvements. We have collated a bunch of resources, as well as written our own guide to help support your research knowledge.
You can choose to work through in a linear order, or simply click around to topics you are less familiar with. You can click ‘Complete’ at the bottom of each page to keep track of what you have read, and what is yet to be discovered. In the course, you can access a menu button in the top left corner to access the navigation menu at anytime.

Welcome to The Peregrine Centre's Building Research Capacity Workbook.
