Today TDR and The Global Health Network are pleased to announce the launch of their Global Competency Framework for Clinical Research. This is a flexible framework which lists the competencies that should be demonstrated by the research team as a whole to carry out a successful clinical study. Importantly, the framework can be applied to any clinical research study, regardless of the size of the team, place, disease focus and type of research. Visit this page for an interactive version of the framework and all its component parts.Go to page

NEW! Children and Clinical Research is a new free, online training course tackling the issue of: how can we ethically undertake the research involving children and young people that is needed to ensure their healthcare services are safe and effective, given that research often involves burdens and risks? Moreover, what role should children, young people and parents themselves play in influencing how research studies are carried out, and how can their voices help influence the wider research agenda?
This peer reviewed course outlines ethical aspects of sharing individual level research data and proposed best practices. It aims to be of value to those designing and reviewing individual research protocols where data sharing is anticipated, and to those developing institutional policies and processes for governing data sharing.
