What can we offer?
NWORTH specialises in the design, conduct and analysis of clinical trials and has particular expertise in undertaking evaluations of complex interventions.
The unit can provide practical support and bespoke advice in both partnership and collaboration with all aspects of your study from design, conduct, and analysis through to reporting and dissemination. At each stage of clinical trial development and conduct, the unit provides expertise in all areas thus ensuring the trials are run to the highest quality.
How can we assist?
All requests for collaboration are discussed and assessed by the NWORTH Core Operational Team. The assessment will determine the level of NWORTH involvement if a proposal is accepted. NWORTH involvement can range from full CTU engagement where a study is fully-managed by NWORTH or NWORTH can be responsible for discrete elements (e.g. statistics, data management etc...).
The assessment of study proposals is based on a number of factors including the quality of the research proposal, feasibility & deliverability, clarity of role and remit, funding & finances and the capacity of NWORTH to deliver within the proposed timeframe.
All of our studies are governed by our suite of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) specifically developed for managing all aspects of our clinical studies to the highest of standards. These have been written in compliance with current regulatory requirements and principles of Good Clinical Practice (GCP), Research Governance Framework, EU Clinical Trial Directive and other guidelines (NHS guidelines/policies/clinical governance).
Potential collaborators are advised to approach NWORTH as early in the process as possible and at least 6-8 weeks before a funding deadline.
