Conducting a Study

Conducting a Study

There are a number of different kinds of projects involving data collection, research, audit, service evaluation, Quality Improvement (QI) initiatives, case notes studies, student thesis, etcetera.  All of them require formal authorisation from the Trust before participants can be approached or data collected.

Do you need help developing your idea and choosing a study format? Do you know how to get permission for your study? 

Every study needs a local ELFT lead to ensure successful delivery.

Whether or not prior consent is required to use data in a study depends on a number of factors.

HRA Approval is the process for the NHS in England that replaces the need for local checks of legal compliance and related matters by each participating organisation.
