Thought of the day: the focus of research

With this comes the importance of having a clear focus within your research and ensuring it is practice orientated. After all, there is no point in doing research for research’s sake! The principle of research is undermined if the outcomes cannot be translated and implemented into action or policy. This is an important aspect for all areas of research in science and arts but is particularly pertinent for public health, which often deals with large populations.
