“The best teaching is taught by the patient himself”
Sir William Osler
Regius Professor of Medicine, University of Oxford (1905-1920)
Funding for individual DI projects comes from a wide range of sources – national research funding agencies, voluntary or charitable organizations, private donors, and other groups, but we have a common agreement that aims to regulate the type and nature of financial support for this type of research. All DIPEx International member teams must comply with the ethical funding policy regarding acceptable funding sources and practices for the research and related knowledge translation activities. This policy was originally developed by the UK DIPEx Charity to preserve impartiality and scientific integrity within the research program led by the Health Experiences Research Group at the University of Oxford, and has been adopted for all member groups within DI as a condition of membership. Funding from pharmaceutical companies is prohibited as is advertising for commercial purposes.
