A new magazine called The Researcher has launched today. The digital publication, created for health researchers by health researchers aims to raise awareness of research careers among nurses, midwives and allied health professionals.

Health Education England (HEE), NHS Research and Development  North West and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) have worked together with a team of early career health researchers and award winning writer Rob Young to produce the magazine which illustrates the real-life stories of what it is like to undertake a research career.

Jacqueline Gaile, a Senior Research Speech and Language Therapist, part of the  University of Manchester and Salford Royal NHS foundation Trust is a member of the editorial panel. She said:
“I want to be part of building a community of clinical and early career researchers who can support each other to work for patient benefit. I see this magazine as an opportunity to showcase the unique position we occupy as clinical researchers and to support each other through the various challenges this role brings. I'm an artist and a scientist; doing clinical research and editing The Researcher magazine allow me to be both at the same time.”

Nicki Latham, Executive Director of Performance and Development at HEE – who funded the magazine – said:
“At HEE we have a responsibility to develop a workforce that embraces research and innovation, and to support clinical academic careers for health professionals. I am passionate about research and evidence-based decision making, and the impact it can have on the quality of patient care.

I hope that these real-life stories of the positives and challenges of undertaking research will inspire other early career researchers to get involved and think about what they can offer to improve services and care for patients.  For those in the middle of a research project, we hope that the magazine gives you the encouragement to keep going and share your experiences with others.”

This first edition has the theme of ‘Breaking boundaries’ and is available here. Two further editions of The Researcher are planned over the next six months - 'Keeping balanced' and 'Maintaining momentum'.
