This page provides a platform for hosting information and resources to support the development of an evidence base for health and social care practice. The page includes a section detailing the work of the Ethics Committee and the process required for seeking an ethical opinion of a research proposal. There is a section detailing current local research projects being undertaken within Health and Social Care. In addition details of conferences taking place on Island and opportunities to respond to the call for papers to present at these conferences are available through the link below. The social media links will take you to some exciting twitter feeds and the evidence based practice resources will provide some insight into the new developments taking place within the field. Whilst this page is targeted at the Professional User, it is envisaged that the wider community will find the information of interest.
Current research projects
Guernsey ethics committee
- The Guernsey Ethics Committee has roles in two separate areas:
Research Ethics - The objectives are to maintain high ethical standards in the conduct of all research studies undertaken in Guernsey and Alderney on participants who consent to take part (i.e. patients, service users, carers, relatives of the deceased, professional staff, healthy volunteers etc), thereby protecting their dignity, rights, safety and wellbeing.
The Committee will provide an ethical opinion on research studies using therapeutic, non-therapeutic or diagnostic methodologies and research studies using social science methodologies (such as qualitative or quantitative).
All research carried out: should seek to provide evidence that could lead to improved health and social care services; must be ethical and conducted with optimum technical skill and precautions for safety.
Clinical Ethics - The objectives are:
- to provide ethics input into policy and guidelines for providers of primary health, secondary health and social care in Guernsey and Alderney;
- to provide support to clinical teams and the commissioning team in individual cases;
- to facilitate training and education in ethics for health and social care professionals and other staff
- Dates of meetings and deadline for submission of proposals
