Is your project a research study?

The primary aim of research is to derive new knowledge that can be generalised to a majority of people or cases, whereas, the aim of audit and service evaluation projects is to measure standards of care.

Determine whether your study is a research study

You will also need to determine whether your study will require ethics review from an NHS Research Ethics Committee. http://www.hra-decisiontools.org.uk/ethics/

If you would like advice from the research and development team, please contact us as early as possible. A member of the team will be allocated to discuss your project with you and provide advice.
