This workshop will provide you with: an overview of research ethics in the NHS. an overview of the process for seeking an ethical opinion using IRAS. a practical guide to using IRAS. a step-by-step guide to preparing an IRAS application and supporting document. a practical guide to responding to the REC’s post-review comments.
