Welcome to our 15th spring edition of the newsletter.

As we all continue our journey of promoting research and evidence we

are delighted to provide you with the 15th edition of our newsletter.

Post our research conference hosted on the 10th of March (see pages

20-26 for updates and links to the event on page 22) we have once

again plenty of material to share with you about the conference but also

a number of other updates and information about developments

underway in relation to social work and social care research and

evidence activity here in Northern Ireland and elsewhere.

Of particular importance is our recently launched Research Strategy

and ongoing work in relation to Building a Research Community.

Dissemination of research and evidence is so important if we are to

inform service improvement in service outcomes. We continue to be

impressed on the number of number of our practitioners, service users

and carers and academics who are engaged in writing publications for

peer reviewed journals and in contributing to books.

Check out details on forthcoming events from other organisations.

Feedback from our readers on the new style of newsletter presentation

and layout was very positive. Thank you to all who sent comments.
