The BHF Data Science Centre are investigating the use of routinely collected data in cardiovascular (CVD) clinical trials and the challenges associated with this. This survey will help them identify ways to address these challenges, support users of routinely collected data and allow the full potential of these data to be realised.
The British Heart Foundation Clinical Research Collaborative (BHF CRC) aims to support the planning and delivery of clinical research in heart and circulatory disease.
We will provide the infrastructure to facilitate, enhance and coordinate the research activity of existing cardiovascular and surgical societies, all of whom have pledged their support.
We are inclusive in our approach and will support our stakeholders to develop and deliver the projects irrespective of the proposed or final source of funding.
The BHF CRC initiative is funded by the British Heart Foundation and hosted by the British Cardiovascular Society.

To enable the effective planning and delivery of clinical research
Provide solutions to problems faced by our external stakeholders
Working with the research community to promote representation and opportunities
The most important thing to think about when designing a clinical study is to make sure that it is asking an important question and that it is a going to give a reliable answer. The committee want to work with clinical researchers to try to develop some very big and reliable studies that answer the most important questions.
Interested in data-enabled clinical trials? If so, one of our partners, the BHF Data Science Centre, is now recruiting for a person to lead on their data-enable clinical trials theme.
