I want to submit an idea for a project that I want BURST to help develop and deliver 

Great! We look forward to collaborating.

The fundamental principle behind BURST network projects is that trainees lead on the development and delivery of the idea and recognition on publications. BURST is not simply a means of getting trainees to deliver already developed projects. Whilst input from senior clinicians is fundamental to our success, recognition of the trainees is the priority. Robust internal and external peer review processes, protocol development phase and committee adoption process’ have been developed by BURST to ensure that high quality and methodologically sound work is produced and the efforts of trainees who take part in BURST projects are safeguarded.

What do I do if I have an idea?

1. Frame idea into simple concise statements using the Download Proposal Proforma
2. Carry out a brief literature review on the topic to establish if the topic is important, what has been done so far and what you hope to add with the study. Check if there is already a systematic review or meta-analysis on the topic.
3. Discuss an idea with a consultant Urologist who is happy to be an advisor on the project and agrees it is a good idea
4.  Refine the Project proposal form after input from Consultant
5. Email the BURST Research Collaborative with your idea or present it at a National Forum at one of our meetings

What happens to an idea after it is considered by the Research Collaborative?

Feedback is given to the Project Lead Investigator: 

  • Is there potential to develop this idea and deliver it as part of a Research Collaborative project
  • A Project Committees will be formed
  • Successfully adopted projects will follow the typical examples seen in Figure 1 and Figure 2
