Policies

All Researchers should be familiar with NSHA’s Research Manual*. The manual consists of more than twenty policies and procedures pertaining to research administration, ethics, conduct, quality and integrity, and clinical.  All research policies bear an “RS” in the policy number (e.g., RS-RA-001).
