    Resources to improve research information for patients

    The National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network has produced a resource pack to help NHS trusts raise awareness of clinical research among patients and carers, and deliver on the NHS constitution commitment to provide research information supporting patient choice.

    The aim of the booklet is to help NHS Trusts increase research awareness within the Trust and promote the local research opportunities available to patients. It features a range of materials that you can order at low cost, which will help your staff and patients gain a better understanding of what research is, its benefits and how they can get involved. You will also find examples of good practice that will help you develop your Trust’s research culture. There are many other examples of good practice in the NHS and those presented in this booklet are intended as a useful insight to inspire your own ideas.

    If you have any questions about the materials, or content of this booklet, please contact crncc.comms@nihr.ac.uk
