Applying for ethical approval

Getting approval from the Research Ethics Committee is often seen as a big hurdle for research, but help is at hand - not least from a recent article co-authored by the Chair of Cambridgeshire 4 Research Ethics Committee:

Applying for ethical approval for research in the United Kingdom

BMJ 2009;339:b4013

"This article offers practical advice on how to expedite the ethical review process."

There's plenty of advice and support available from the National Research Ethics Service, including a step by step guide through the application process; and also the support available from the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust R& D department
