Congratulations, your research study has Management Approval! What happens next? R&I will ensure that all research studies are carried out in line with national guidelines as described in the Scottish Executive Research Governance Framework for Health and Community Care (2nd edition February 2006) and other relevant government legislation.
Once R&I has issued Management Approval the Investigator is authorised to proceed with the research study. R&I is then responsible for research management and governance of the research study and will require updates on recruitment, study progress and will approve all study amendments throughout the lifetime of the study
