Support unit to research
The Clinical Research Unit (Unidad de Investigación Clínica, UIC) was created in 2009 with the aim of promoting and strengthening activity in clinical trials and observational studies in public health centres. It is the “one-stop-shop” for health professionals, health promoters or any organisation that wants to carry out a clinical research project.
This unit advises and gives support to the researchers of the Health Department in photography, scientific video, image processing, multimedia presentations and graphic design for use in conferences, seminars, publications and research projects.
The Methodology Unit (UM) assists SNS-O professionals in the design and execution of research projects and in statistical data analysis.
The project management unit was born as a research support service and with the incorporation of specialised personnel it began to operate in June 2010.
After this first year of familiarisation with the operative framework (researchers, businesses, financing opportunities) and definition of services offered by the unit, in 2011 it set consolidation as one of its main objectives and began a process of quality certification (ISO 9001) which will guarantee continual improvement in the services rendered.
