Course details

The 4Ps Programme has been developed by Newcastle’s Nurses, Midwives and Allied Health Professionals (NMAHPs) and designed to support your needs no matter where you are on the “research interested” to “Aspiring Clinical Academic” continuum.

This welcoming jargon-free modular programme has four modules:

  • Place
  • Project
  • Person
  • Plan

They provide you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to move forward with research.

The starting point for the programme is our pre-requisite Foundation session .

The programme is delivered by a range of NMAHP clinical-academic colleagues, and with input from relevant organisations including the Research Design Service, Patient and Public Involvement panels, universities and funders.

What are the 4 Ps?



“I am as nowhere as I can be, can you add some somewhere to me?”

This module will help you to think about developing the right collaborations, identifying the right expertise and choosing and engaging with mentors and supervisors who can support you on your journey.

This is such an important ingredient as relationships with mentors and supervisors can influence your whole career and can really help you to go places.



“Push harder than yesterday if you want a different tomorrow…”

This module will explore a recipe of key ingredients for a research project such as:

  • linking your work to strategic priorities
  • looking at the literature
  • developing your research question
  • identifying the right methodology and
  • ultimately starting to develop a project plan or application for funding.


The best project you will ever work on is you…”

This module will help you to focus on you as an individual, as a researcher and as a leader.

We’ll cover things like developing your research CV, writing activities, public speaking and all things confidence building for you as a researcher.




“It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.”

Planning is so important for any piece of research, but it’s not just about planning the project.

This session will help you to think about the bigger picture, influencing up, down and across.

Also what to do next regardless of the outcome of a research related funding or fellowship application.


The starting point for the course is the Foundation session. This is an essential building block which equips colleagues to go on to the subsequent modules. We learn about the research landscape, and begin to think about where we fit into it. We cover topics like the difference between research, audit and service evaluation. We spend time thinking about who we are as clinicians, as potential researchers, and what the opportunities might be for us.

Intended Audience

The Newcastle Hospitals’ 4Ps Programme supports the needs of all NMAHPs regardless of where they are on their research journey.
