Generally the Quality of Life Department does not involve itself in external research projects. We receive numerous requests on a daily basis and it is impossible for us to design a trial, provide actual data-management or to perform analyses for free as a consultancy service. Neither do we take any responsibility for results obtained outside of the EORTC framework. Hopefully, the information provided on these FAQs will help you consider some of the basic issues in designing clinical trials and research projects. In some instances, we can offer consultancy services for a fee and requests for this should be initially directed to the Head of the Quality of Life Department, Dr Andrew Bottomley.
Should you be interested in starting a new research project under the auspices of the EORTC Quality of Life Group or Department, please contact the Chairman of the Group or the Head of the Quality of Life Department.
