Hi, I am undertaking a Clinical Doctorate so it is a bit different but the process overall will be similar. Don't worry about not knowing or understanding it at this stage- that is all part of the journey ! It is great that you are thinking about it.
From a clinical perspective the most important aspect is considering the ethical implications of your proposed study and what it will potentially contribute to the existing body of knowledge. The process of doing your literature review and writing your research proposal forms the basis of the detailed research application system (IRAS). Completing the IRAS form is very confusing to begin with but the process of writing and re writing drafts of it really helps you to become clearer about what exactly you are going to do and how you are going to do it in practice. Once I was at the stage of moving from the research proposal to completing the form I progressed by sending regular drafts to both supervisors for comments and review.So that by the time I was seeking ethical approval I had completed many drafts.This was definitely time well spent when it came to gaining ethical approval for the study. When thinking about your data collection it is important to consider what is practical and feasible so I would say being close to your research sites is a definite advantage.Peer support is invaluable also. Hope this helps even a wee bit.
Good Luck
K

Hi Zk433,

Any research where data is being collected from NHS patients requires approval from NHS Research Ethics Committee and Research and Development within the NHS. It is up to the researcher to submit the necessary applications using the Integrated Research Application System (IRAS). Supervisors provide support with the process and in my experience their knowledge of the system is variable as it changes frequently. You can apply to collect data from a number of different clinical sites with one University acting as sponsor for the research. I would think that the university that your supervision is being provided from would undertake the sponsorship role.
When working up your research proposal a key element is identifying where you are most likely to be able to gather your data and how you can ethically go about this. It is always good to try and establish informal links with potential research sites as these links can really help you when it comes to accessing and gathering the data. Hope this helps.

Well done !!! You are clearly a resilient and determined individual.It is awful to think that someone else might have given up and walked away- forever believing their work was not worthy of a PhD because of one examiners unfair judgement. You have held firm proven the value of your work. I would imagine the whole process was a nightmare but worth it in the end. Go you. Congratulations x
