Be a discerning consumer of research by Prof. SARAVANA KUMAR

They didn’t have anyone to help or mentor them to “unpack” what the research was about. When clinicians did want to engage with research, there were limitations in terms of accessing research as many did not have expensive subscriptions or they did not know who to approach to ask for help.
