Launch of New Resource for NHS Trusts: Best patient care clinical research and you
Date: 30 June 2021
A fantastic new resource to be hosted on Trust intranets has been launched on the Forum website to support NHS Trusts.
‘Best Patient Care, Clinical Research and You’ is an online guide to help busy non research staff become more aware of their impact on research in their Trust. In effect it raises general awareness, which should help research delivery in particular, but it also helps the Trust fulfil requirements of the research elements in the CQC Well Led Framework, the NHS Long Term Plan and now the new UK vision for clinical research delivery.
This resource was developed collaboratively between the NIHR CRN, NHS R&D Forum, UKRD and NHSE/I and it has already been piloted successfully in 12 organisations.
Ashley Solieri, who has led on the project for the Forum said:
“It has been a pleasure working collaboratively to develop this simple, yet effective resource that will raise awareness of how all staff in an organisation can have an impact on research and support our endeavours to embed research within our organisations”
