Our Mandate

Multiple collaboratives across the country have made significant advances in clinical based research, with multicentre studies and trials. The necessity for inter-hospital communication to develop patient cohorts has never been more important in trying to establish the best treatments and innovations. The LTRC has been established to support and encourage trainees to undertake clinical projects and improve patient outcomes through collaborative research.

The LTRC collaborates with the North West Surgical Trials Centre (NWSTC) and benefits from their support and expertise. This group is supported by senior clinicians who provide supervision and guidance on research projects.

Our Aims

  • To improve patient outcomes through multicentre collaborative research.
  • To educate trainees in the basics of research methodology.
  • To develop multicentre audits/cohort studies and clinical trials.
  • To foster cross specialty trainee collaboration in many fields.
  • To collaborate with other groups/collaboratives and develop national projects.
  • To nurture future Principle Investigators (PIs)

Meetings

We meet monthly/bimonthly to discuss ideas, form educational objectives and review research projects. These are in the form of informal meetings and quarterly formal discussion at the Trials Unit
