E-learning resources for sponsors and applicants
Two new complementary eLearning modules are now available on the HRA Learning Management System (LMS) outlining HRA Approval processes for commercial and non-commercial sponsors respectively.
They cover applying for HRA Approval and setting up HRA Approval studies in the NHS in England. They include details of new HRA Approval arrangements for amendments and new sites that now apply to all NHS studies in England started in pre-HRA Approval systems.
The NIHR Clinical Research Network offers an e-learning module on attribution of costs for research in the NHS.
