Tuesday 12 February 2013
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) commissions leading-edge scientific research focused on improving the health and wealth of the nation.
The NIHR is keen to increase the volume and impact of research on the evaluation of health care interventions or services delivered in primary care settings and will be holding a national workshop on research into primary care interventions at the Church House Conference Centre, London on Tuesday 12 February 2013.
The purpose of the workshop is to:
1. provide the primary care research community with an opportunity to hear about existing sources of research funding
2. help researchers prepare for future funding opportunities.
Representatives of a range of NIHR programmes and supporting NIHR infrastructure will attend to advise on the various funding routes available and provide help and guidance on developing and submitting an application.
The participating programmes are:
Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (EME)
Health Services & Delivery Research (HS&DR)
Health Technology Assessment (HTA)
Invention for Innovation (i4i)
Public Health Research (PHR)
Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR)
Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB)
NIHR Fellowships Programme
The workshop is open to all active researchers from professional groups of any discipline working in or alongside primary care in the NHS, including non-NHS public health settings. The workshop will be made up of two identical sessions and delegates will be able to register their interest to attend either the morning or afternoon session.
