NIHR launches new Clinical Trials Toolkit for researchers

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has announced the launch of its new Clinical Trials (CT) Toolkit website. This innovative website is designed to help researchers navigate through the complex landscape of setting up and managing clinical trials in line with regulatory requirements.

Based on the design of a tube map, the CT Toolkit uses an interactive colour-coded routemap to differentiate between legal and good practice requirements. This provides essential information at the 'stations' along the route and gives the users an idea of the critical path for trial set-up and delivery.

Although primarily aimed at those involved in publicly funded Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products (CTIMPs), the CT Toolkit will also benefit researchers and R&D staff working on trials in other areas.

The site signposts users to resources such as: the National Research Ethics Service (NRES), the Health Research Authority (HRA) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) websites.
