A key aim of King's Critical Care Research is to ensure that equality, diversity and inclusion is hard-wired into all research that we do. This includes ensuring that our research benefits all patient groups, their families but also staff.
This includes ensuring that groups from different cultures; different social backgrounds and different ethnicity all participate in research. We also want to ensure that patients with prior mental health disorder; physical disability or learning difficulty are all considered and all benefit from research.
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in Research Studies
Here we describe efforts to ensure research questions are formed with equality, diversity and inclusion at the centre of them. This includes ensuring patients with no address, or who do not have English as a first language, can be included.
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in Conduct Of Research Studies
In this section we describe placing equality, diversity and inclusion at the centre of research protocols, trial steering/management teams; patient-relative information forms and consent forms. importantly the research question and the way we want to answer it, are all transparent and understandable by staff, families and patients.
