The Institute of Cancer Research, our sister organisation at the Royal Marsden have said yes, that although they develop their content primarily for existing students, if there is a clear demand they are happy to investigate and potentially develop either in-house or with a partner. Their previous toolkits were on CD-Rom and have not become available in other formats due to the size of the eLearning team and their current workload. I have also been asking Marsden clinical colleagues if this is something they would use or contribute to and they are interested.
I am following up with a colleague from the National Institute of Health Research who has already developed a research ‘consent’ app, in about ten days time. Then further groundwork with GPs and others to see if this something that is worth pursuing further.
