Research Governance

Research Governance is the name given to the management, standards of conduct, processes and systems related to research. Research Governance is not a single process; many activities and concepts are encompassed within it. 

Guidance for standards and processes that constitute good research practice in the NHS were brought together and documented in the 2001 Department of Health publication, "The Research Governance Framework for Health & Social Care".  A theme running through Research Governance is the need for the protection of patients’ rights, dignity and safety.
