Public Attitudes to Research Governance: A qualitative study in a deliberative context
This report presents findings from an in-depth research study that aimed to:
- situate the role governance plays in shaping attitudes to biomedical research
- explore public responses to the principles and processes associated with different models of governance, and
- investigate the processes that function to reassure the public and which instil confidence in the way biomedical research is governed.
Conducted by a team at the University of Surrey, this Trust-funded research shows that the public are positive about participating in research and sharing personal data if effective systems are in place to ensure informed consent and anonymity.
