Title Pathology of Infection Research, Development and Innovation
Type Stage Two
Code HLS273
Requirement Compulsory

Module objective

To enable the trainee to plan, conduct, supervise, evaluate and report research and development, which includes original research, translational research and innovative service development. As part of this, trainees will be required to keep a detailed portfolio describing the development of a specific molecular diagnostic test from inception to clinical delivery.

Knowledge and understanding

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate the ability to analyse, evaluate and synthesise relevant knowledge and its application to research, development and innovation with respect to:

  • describing and explaining the steps to be taken in planning a research and development project
  • describing and explaining research governance and the steps to be taken to conduct and supervise a valid research and development project
  • describing and explaining how to critically appraise the results of a research and development project, draw conclusions in the correct clinical context. Where appropriate, use them to plan follow up research and development
  • describing and explaining the variety of ways in which research and development findings can be reported and communicated to peers and other interested parties
  • describing and explaining the steps required to translate successful research findings into service in the interests of patient care

Technical and clinical skills

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of research, development and innovation and its application to the performance, adaptation and mastery of the following skills:

  • describing and explaining the principles underpinning research methodology, research reporting, peer review and conflict of interests
  • critically appraising the results of a research and development project, draw conclusions in the correct clinical context, and, where appropriate, use them to plan follow up research and development
  • demonstrating use of a variety of ways in which research and development findings has been reported and communicated to peers and other interested parties
  • being able to translate successful research findings into service and provide examples of where this has been achieved
  • developing and validating of a molecular diagnostic test from inception to clinical delivery, including demonstration of:
    • analytical validity
    • clinical validity and applicability to the NHS structure
    • clinical utility including cost/benefit analysis
    • CPA
    • EQA and IQA
    • plan for introduction into routine service (laboratory & clinical)
