Roles to deliver studies

Roles to deliver studies

Research delivery roles

Delivering a research study is about working in teams and drawing upon expertise to bring new opportunities to people. Indeed, inter-disciplinary working is often one of the aspects of research that people find stimulating and rewarding.

There are, in fact, a huge variety of roles spanning NHS, social care and public health. These roles will vary depending on the nature and context of the research. They can be specific roles such as a pharmacist or radiographer, or they may be much broader, such as a research nurse, allied health professional, clinical studies officer, clinical research practitioner, trial coordinator, research assistant, or research fellow.

Research governance roles

All trusts in our region are research active and have research and development (R&D) departments to help support the successful delivery of research. Within each department, there are a range of roles that deliver and embed research, promoting choice, inclusiveness and access.

Staff in R&D play a critical role in facilitating the growth of research activity, building capacity and developing skills across our health and care systems.

They also have regulatory responsibilities for sponsoring research; the safe, ethical and legal involvement of participants; the quality and efficiency of research activity; the integrity of research data and the transfer of research information for knowledge.
