You must ensure that you have ethical approval from the appropriate body when conducting research. Ethical approval may be required through an academic institution, from an individual healthcare organisation or from the Health Service Executive. Permission will also need to be sought from the relevant manager or medical / nursing director in the individual organisation(s) you seek to undertake the research in.
