Benign Gynaecology and Early Pregnancy Clinical Study Group

Sponsors

Chair: Professor Jane Daniels

 

Aims

We aim to generate, prioritise, encourage and facilitate research in abnormal menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain conditions, endometrial hyperplasia, miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy and acute gynaecological conditions in the UK. Our group consists of a small executive who meet three times per year, and a wider email group. While our members are predominantly doctors with medical and surgical expertise who are interested in research, our membership also includes nurse specialists, midwives, trialists, and lay members.

Our intention is to provide leadership for randomised trials and other high quality studies within the benign gynaecology, minimal access surgery and early pregnancy communities, combining expertise with enthusiasm. We provide advice to researchers on research methodology and participate in peer reviewing potential studies to optimise their quality and relevance. In this way we can then provide support to applicants submitting high-quality, relevant research proposals for external funding and oversee an approved portfolio of studies.

 

Research proposals

We are very keen to receive suggestions for research, which may consist simply of an idea or question submitted on a scrap of paper through to a fully worked up proposal. We provide advice to researchers on research methodology and participate in peer reviewing potential trials to optimise their quality and relevance. In this way we can then provide support to applicants submitting high-quality, relevant research proposals for external funding and oversee an approved portfolio of studies.

If you would like to propose a study for us to consider, please complete the project proforma and email it to Jane Daniels at jane.daniels@nottingham.ac.uk

The NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) Network provides help for researchers to prepare proposals for submission to NIHR and other national, peer-reviewed funding competitions for applied health or social care research by providing expert advice on research design and methodology.

The UKCRC Clinical Trials Unit Network offers a resource for clinical researchers and funders wishing to identify CTUs that have expertise in trial design, data management, and analysis. Involvement of a CTU is essential for those considering a randomised controlled trial.
