Guidelines for Research

Guidelines for Obtaining Scientific and Ethical Approval for Research at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre

Hospital leadership represented by CEO, CMO and MD is committed to do high quality research as reflected in Mission Statement of hospital, “To act as a model institution to alleviate the suffering of patients with cancer through the application of modern methods of curative and palliative therapy irrespective of their ability to pay, the education of health care professionals and the public and to perform research into the causes and treatment of cancer”

Leadership at SKMCH&RC promotes research of highest scientific and ethical standards. It has established research guidelines to provide guidance to investigators. Research guidelines define the scientific standard and code of ethical conduct of research involving human subjects, which should be followed by all researchers of the hospital. These are based on ethical principles that have their origin in the Declaration of Helsinki, and that are consistent with GCP and the applicable regulatory requirements.  Leadership has established this code to ensure ethical conduct of research.

Hospital leadership accepts the accountability of protection of human subjects in all research activities of hospital. It makes the investigators responsible for protection of human subjects from research risk. Review Bodies (SRC and IRB) are authorized to review this aspect (the review process remains the same irrespective of sponsor of research). Clinical research office develops, maintains and disseminates these guidelines and ensures the compliance of researchers with these guidelines. Hospital leadership also provides resources and recognition for performance of good research.
