“Our approach to knowledge management is underpinned by our continuous commitment to quality improvement.”
Scottish Autism is principally a service-providing organisation, but engaging with research is a vital part of our approach to the delivery of high quality services.
We are committed to ensuring that our policies and practice are informed by insight. To this end Scottish Autism operates an internal knowledge management process. The aim of this is to maximise and disseminate autism knowledge internally and externally. In doing so we will maximise our resources to ensure optimum benefit to our service users.
The current focus of our knowledge management group is an organisation wide knowledge capture process. Outcomes of this process will underpin future developments in knowledge generation and dissemination.
Scottish Autism has a number of links with the academic community including strong associations with The National Centre for Autism Studies based at the University of Strathclyde. As an organisation we are open to potential research collaborations with partners who share our interests and values.
Scottish Autism is happy to consider requests to facilitate research that is being undertaken by students or professional researchers. Anyone who wishes to advertise their study on our website should send the following information to email@example.com
Researchers should be aware that we have a process for approving requests to facilitate research. Decisions will be communicated as soon as possible following the submission of the above information.
Individuals seeking access to Scottish Autism's services for the purposes of conducting research should also contact Charlene Tait. All such requests are subject to the approval of the senior management team and the senior manager based at the service location.
