SOP 725 – Capacity Capability and Risk Assessment NNUH Hosted Studies
Where the Trust is acting as a potential study site a capacity capability and risk assessment will be conducted to assess the Trust’s capacity and capability to deliver on a study in line with the HRA approval process and to identify potential hazards and assess the likelihood of those hazards occurring and resulting in harm. Follow-up actions will be dependent on the outcome of the assessment.
Clinical GuidelinesThis guideline has been approved by the Trust's Clinical Guidelines Assessment Panel as an aid to the diagnosis and management of relevant patients and clinical circumstances. Not every patient or situation fits neatly into a standard guideline scenario and the guideline must be interpreted and applied in practice in the light of prevailing clinical circumstances, the diagnostic and treatment options available and the professional judgement, knowledge and expertise of relevant clinicians. It is advised that the rationale for any departure from relevant guidance should be documented in the patient's case notes.
The Trust's guidelines are made publicly available as part of the collective endeavour to continuously improve the quality of healthcare through sharing medical experience and knowledge. The Trust accepts no responsibility for any misunderstanding or misapplication of this document.
