We are delighted to announce our poster "Using Health Informatics to Increase Study Recruitment" won the prize for the Most promising infrastructure development/initiative to improve clinical research potential (nationally) at Monday's NRS Conference.
In partnership with University of Dundee, NHS Tayside & NHS Fife, SDRN are hosting an event for diabetes patients interested in discovering research on 'World Diabetes Day'. The evening will consist of presentations from Doctors currently undertaking research studies in the Tayside & Fife regions. You will be able to learn about your National Diabetes Research Network and how you could possibly help with current studies.
All Scottish Diabetes Research Nurses are invited to a study day 'Integrating Research and Clinical Care' in Dundee on Thursday 8th November 2012. This is designed to be an interactive day and we would like each site to bring at least one case study of where care of the patient during a research study has had a direct effect on their clinical care.
The SDRN was commissioned by the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) of the Scottish Government to improve the quality and increase the quantity of diabetes research in Scotland, as part of the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC).
