HSC R&D Strategy - Research for Health & Wellbeing 2007-2012
The HSC R&D Strategy was developed to promote high quality health
& social care R&D relevant to the needs of NI. It also aimed to provide equality of opportunity
amongst health professionals and support for HSC professions and care sectors that do not have a long-standing
R&D tradition. The document provides a strategic framework for delivering high quality, relevant
and co-ordinated HSC R&D. For a copy of the document please contact Dr Janice Bailie.
The R&D Office produces a twice yearly newsletter (R&D Today),
a hard copy of which can be obtained upon request to the Office.
Research Governance concerns setting standards to improve research quality
and safeguard the public. It involves enhancing ethical and scientific quality, promoting good practice,
reducing adverse incidents, ensuring lessons are learned and preventing poor performance and misconduct.
Any professional engaging in research involving patients or their tissues and information should be
aware of the Research Governance Framework for Health & Social Care. Follow this link to read the
