Best Patient Care, Clinical Research and You Trust staff guide
Following a carefully considered and insightful pilot phase involving 12 Trusts, the Best Patient Care, Clinical Research and You Trust staff guide toolkit has now been published and is being rolled out.
Developed in a partnership led by the NIHR CRN NHS Engagement Team, the NHS R&D Forum, UKRD and NHS England, the guide aims to provide NHS staff with an easy to use guide that helps individual staff members understand how their role can impact on research in their Trust.
Crucially, the guide needs to be on Trust platforms that staff normally use. For this reason, the contents and general form of the guide are designed to be localised by the individual Trusts prior to being transferred on to the local staff intranets/platforms. The localisation then helps to embed the guide in the central Trust communication platforms and ensures that the messaging resonates with the reader. To ensure consistent national messaging, a mock up site outlines the core content and site navigation. To accompany this, individual page guides have been made available as part of a toolkit. Based on the pilot, we have been able to provide hints and tips for how best to approach the guide set up, and who and what teams may need to be involved. This provides Trusts with everything they need to get started and then establish the guide in their local staff support infrastructure.
