Quality Assurance in Research

Quality Assurance (QA) is an integral part of safely conducting research. QA ensures that patients are provided with opportunities to participate in high quality and ethical research, while protecting the integrity of the data collected.

Researchers are expected to adhere to relevant local, national, and international guidance and regulatory and legislative requirements to ensure QA compliance. This includes following the principles of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and study-specific Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

Research Hosted and Sponsored by CNTW is subject to audit and monitoring procedures, and the frequency and method of these is determined by a risk-graded assessment.

Our SOP library can be found in the ‘Research Standard Operating Procedures and Quality Assurance System’ tab on this website.
If you have any queries about ensuring QA compliance in your research at CNTW, or would like any support, please contact:
