Research Requests

TARN Research supports research requests involving national and multi-network data.

If you are conducting research only involving data for your hospital or network, then this data can be obtained as follows:

  • TARN account holder: via your TARN data sources.
  • No TARN account but work at a TARN member hospital: via your local TARN data-coordinator.

If you have an interest in conducting a national or multi-network research project using TARN data, please utilise the resources below to make your request; ensuring you have read 'The 'R' in TARN' before submittance.
