I am new to research, where do I start?
Here are some resources that were used at a 2017 RMO conference about where to start your research journey.
What is Research vs an Audit?
In accordance with the Research Policy, all research within the Canterbury District Health Board must be registered with and processed through the CDHB Research Office. This includes the registration and processing of authorisation documentation for Research Audits.
Non Research Clinical Audits / Quality Improvement audits do not have to be registered with the Research Office and as such do not have to have their documentation authorised through research office processes.
See the Fact Sheet and link to the corresponding CDHB Research Audit Versus Clinical Audit worksheet to answer to following questions.
Is my project a Clinical Audit or a Research Audit?
Do I need HDEC ethical approval for my Audit? Will I need this in order to publish?
Forms and templates
Short processing times and successful funding applications are dependent on the usage of the correct forms and templates.
