Writing the Protocol
The protocol, or as Bearman preferred, the manual of operations , may have to serve many functions: raising monies from a funding agency; obtaining the approval of an ethical committee; recruiting participants; providing a detailed and specific list of instructions on how to perform the trial; and lastly supplying a permanent record of what was intended in the trial. The same document may serve all these functions, and in addition a section on finances may be included when the document is used as a grant application.
