Research Guidelines

Hospital leadership represented by Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Medical Officer (CMO) and Medical Director (MD) is committed to do high quality research as reflected in the mission statement of the 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 the highest scientific and ethical standards. It has established research guidelines to provide guidance to investigators. Research guidelines define the scientific standards 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 Good clinical practice (GCP) guidelines and the applicable regulatory requirements.  Leadership has established this code to ensure the ethical conduct of research.

Hospital leadership accepts the accountability of protection of human subjects in all research activities of the hospital irrespective of the sponsor of the research. All research participants are entitled to treatment at SKMCH&RC. Leadership makes the investigators responsible for the protection of human subjects from research risk. Review Bodies (Scientific review committee, SRC and Institutional review board, IRB) are authorized to review this aspect. 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 the performance of good research. The evaluation of staff participating in the research program is incorporated into the routine appraisal of professional performance. The hospital research program is integrated into the quality and patient safety program of the hospital to ensure safe, high quality care for patients participating in research activities.
