Event description
A workshop for patients, the public and research professionals to discuss the HRA's proposals to improve transparency in health research

About this Event

Background

When research is open and transparent everyone benefits; the public can see what types of research are taking place, patients can join research studies and access clear information about research findings, research professionals and policy makers can make use of research results and funders can make better use of research funds.

Whilst transparency has improved over recent years, practice still doesn’t always match requirements and expectations. The House of Commons Science & Technology Committee conducted an inquiry into research integrity, and in its report, published in October 2018 the committee called on the HRA to develop a strategy to drive improvements in research transparency. The HRA, guided by an expert group and in collaboration with the four nations, has drafted a strategy to achieve research transparency. The HRA is running a 12-week consultation from 17 June 2019. During this period an online survey and series of open workshops will be held to gather feedback on proposals.

Workshop

The HRA is hosting this workshop to hear your opinions on the draft strategy for research transparency. During the workshop you will be asked to discuss the different proposals set out in the draft strategy in small groups and then feedback to the wider group. Members of HRA staff and the expert group who were involved in drafting the strategy will be present on the day to hear your views and answer any questions you may have. This is an open workshop for research professionals, patients and the public. Before attending please read through the draft strategy and complete the online survey by following this link .
