Research Governance

In 2007 the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety introduced standards for research in health and social care in Northern Ireland with the aim of improving research quality and to safeguard the public.

All research undertaken in the Trust must comply with the Research Governance Framework. If you are asked to take part in a research project you should receive clear and comprehensive information to help you decide whether you wish to take part.

You may decline if you wish. If you have been involved in a research project you should also receive feedback regarding the research findings.
