clinical research

The Research and Innovation Department is consulted on the research policy of CHU Caen Normandie. It is a support structure for clinical research whose main mission is to ensure the development of clinical research and therapeutic innovation at the CHU Caen Normandie and in the region for establishments that do not have a DRCI.

The DRI has a role of scientific animation, encouragement and support with hospital teams for the emergence of clinical research projects and the implementation of innovations.

    Political quality

    The demand for quality in health research is a constant concern of the institution and its professionals. In this context, and in line with the establishment's quality policy, the General Management of the CHU has promoted a quality approach since 2018, based on the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard (2015 version) . This ambition covers all of the CHU's research support missions for funded interventional clinical trials, missions organized within the Clinical Research Unit, the methodology platform and the Clinical Research Center.

    Thus, the Research and Innovation Department has certified to the ISO9001:2015 standard a quality management system which concerns all clinical research support activities for the support of funded interventional clinical trials: instruction projects and funding, design, implementation and monitoring, carrying out the investigation and final data analysis .
