You will need to report on safety issues, study progress and participant recruitment to various organisations and review bodies throughout the study.
Reporting of safety and progress of the study will vary according to the type of research but is required to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the study participants and that the study is completed on time.
You will be required to report study progress to the research funding body, ethics committee, NHS or social care organisation where the research is being conducted and any relevant regulatory authority. The reporting schedule will be outlined at the outset of the study.
Safety reporting is provided as required and according to the study protocol.
To ensure you meet all the requirements of safely managing your study, you will need to undertake good clinical practice (GCP) training.
