Evaluating new models of care for people with longterm conditions
The NIHR Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) programme has just issued a call for research to evaluate new models of care for people with longterm conditions.
Examples might include a mixed-methods impact study of a new service for the frail elderly in one health and social care system or a cluster trial of practices delivering new forms of case management for people with depression and COPD or heart failure. Preference will be given to service redesigns addressing more than one condition. These will need to be plausible models of care, potentially scaleable to the wider NHS.
As this call requires collaboration between researchers and service partners the usual period for developing proposals has been extended to seven months, to allow time for these relationships to be formed. You are encouraged to come to this workshop with your service partner to strengthen your bid.
The workshop will take place on:
Date: Friday 26 October 2012
Venue: Central London, to be confirmed
**Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come basis. Teams applying for a place will need to demonstrate that the necessary partnership is in place**
- Hear from service leaders why the NHS needs this research
- Substantial resources available for high quality proposals
- Extended time to work up outline proposals with service partners
- Interactive session with research funders and experts as you work up your outline bid to maximise chances of success
To register, please contact Joy Richardson at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 28 September 2012.
