Statistical Consultancy Services are already being provided by the UL Statistical Consulting Unit (SCU) to HSE West and Southern Staff. The SCU is already involved in various research projects in collaboration with the HSE. As part of CSTAR it will also perform and increase its own research with a blend of methodological and collaborative projects.
CSTAR is a collaboration between SCU at UL and the Dept of Epidemiology at UCD now School of Public Health, Physiotherapy & Sport Science. It was funded by the HRB and the intention was to offer consultancy and research methodology advice to everyone involved in Health Research within the Republic of Ireland
