While your child is in Starship you may be asked if you or your child want to be part of a research project. You may also be asked after you leave the hospital.
Starship encourages staff to undertake research. Doing research helps people to think more about what they are doing and come up with new ideas. The research in Starship is mainly what is called clinical research. All research carried out in Starship has to be approved by an Ethics Committee before it can start.
You can find our more information on clinical research from the Children's Research Centre (CRC) at Starship.
