Suzy Wignall (Clinical Governance Advisor – Research Development & Support) and Juan Campos-Perez (Clinical Research Coordinator – Bournemouth University Clinical Research Unit) have compiled a checklist (PDF and word formats) that can be used to support researchers through the process of applying for and conducting clinical research.
The document contains links to various documents and further resources to guide researchers through areas such as applying for external approvals, running the study and closing the study. The checklist clearly sets out what tasks are required, the support/resources available to complete this tasks, a space to write your own notes/how this task was resolved and the date it was completed. Using this document will help you ensure that all the required tasks are completed during your research journey.
The document is also here on the Clinical Governance blog.
Remember – support and guidance is on offer at BU if you are thinking of conducting clinical research, whether in the NHS, private healthcare or social care – contact details for Suzy and Juan are on the checklist, and you can also take a look at the Clinical Governance blog for resources and updates.
Join us for a discussion on climate change, capitalism and security:
EB202 (Lansdowne Campus)
Friday 3 July
Sea levels rise, droughts, floods and superstorms destroy livelihoods and force migration. Entrenched in militarised security cultures, nature is rendered unstable, a risk, a threat to be mitigated and controlled. And those people, displaced and disenfranchised, are deemed by security discourses as byproducts. They too must be managed, subdued, contained. It is no longer only the boundless threat of terrorism that fuels xenophobic pursuits of absolute security, now too, the climate is coming. As hybrid, state-private security partnerships enter ever more profitable deals to secure borders, investment firms are busy weatherproofing the rich, and protest against the corporate purveyors of climate change continues to be violently cracked down. This workshop considers the contours of Policing the Anthropocene, interrogating the cross-sections of climate, capitalism and security.

Defra intends to invest in projects for development of proposed actions, innovations and associated feasibility studies that will increase the resilience of UK infrastructure to a future changing climate.
Defra’s Climate Ready Programme is working to enhance infrastructure resilience to climate change through the development of the National Adaptation Programme for 2013. Reports submitted under the Adaptation Reporting Power have demonstrated that key infrastructure organisations are already considering climate change adaptation and working to mitigate their specific climate change risks. Defra believes that there are significant market opportunities to develop the resilience of infrastructure to climate change and extreme weather, in resource efficient and innovative ways.
Defra is inviting proposals to develop climate resilience innovations both for potential future infrastructure projects and to retro-fit existing infrastructure assets. Innovations which provide incremental adaptation options are also desirable. This competition is seeking innovations which can demonstrate a ‘route to market’ and can be put into practice as viable business and environmental propositions.
The Information Commissioner’s Office ordered the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit to disclose its CRUTEM dataset to Jonathan Jones from Oxford University after he used the Freedom of Information Act. Jones requested access to the CRU archive of world temperature data – recorded jointly with the Met Office – back in 2009, and it was in June this year the ruling was made and the University given one month to deliver the data.
