Support for research studies

At the Clinical Research Facility (CRF) we understand that each study is different and offer flexibility in line with the needs of each research study.  Support may include the provision of nursing care for research participants, study coordination and management, data collection or it may just be the use of CRF equipment and facilities.

Once the support requirements are agreed, a Lead Research Nurse or other CRF contact will be allocated to each study.  The lead person will work with the researcher(s) to:

• Develop, design and maintain study documentation, ensuring that the research protocol is translated into practice
• Make sure that all care is child-focused, research-based, and in line with Trust policies and procedures
• Ensure Good Clinical Practice standards, Trust policy and other legislative requirements are met
