Resources Overview

A research study could require additional resources within the study design that would need to be taken into consideration during your review process. Non-standard treatment could have resource implications for you. These need to be addressed before you agree to participate in a study.

  • Additional resources could be:
  • Extra staff time
  • Patient transport / travel
  • Additional appointments
  • Medication costs
  • Additional tests
  • Stationary / Office costs
  • Space to facilitate any additional staff required

It is your responsibility to ensure any extra costs are not a risk for your organisation or are covered by the study funder if there is one.

Additional information on resources may be available within the Toolkit For Care Home Research, however this toolkit doesn't take into consideration any research governance requirements:
