Survey _Setting The Agenda for Research #Musculoskeletal #MSK @NIHRCRN_nencumb ‏@OfficialNIHR

Setting The Agenda for Research – Musculoskeletal

The purpose of the survey is to develop a short list of Musculoskeletal research priorities that reflect the public’s needs rather than the interests of researchers themselves. The eventual list will be published and does have the potential to influence what projects are funded in the future, so your contribution does make a difference.

PART 1: Quick questions about you and your experience of musculoskeletal conditions.

PART 2: The research in musculoskeletal conditions that are of interest and importance to you.

PART 3: Your details if you would like to be sent the second (and final) survey for this STAR-Musculoskeletal project and if you are interest in taking part in, or shaping, future musculoskeletal research.

Funding _ Knowledge Mobilisation #KM #Research #Fellowship open for applications @NIHR_trainees #Research #Fellowship #KMRF #NIHRtrainees

Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowship (KMRF) has opened for applications today.

The KMRF competition is aimed at individuals with healthcare management and/or academic experience, designed to support the more effective use of research knowledge.

Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowships (KMRF) are designed to support a balance of innovative knowledge mobilisation and research into the processes and impacts of such innovation. Through innovative practice and systematic study of that practice KMR Fellows should advance knowledge and understanding about research use, influence and impact.

In order to support partnership working between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and publicly funded healthcare bodies (NHS organisations or other publicly funded organisations providing health or social care services, for example social enterprises or local authorities), applications must be supported by organisations from both of these different sectors.

KMR Fellowships are personal awards designed to buy out an individual’s salary costs, support the development of innovative knowledge mobilisation activity, and provide the resources necessary to undertake a research investigation of that knowledge mobilisation.

For more details including how to apply visit the NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowship page

Closing date for applications is Thursday 14 September 2017.

Interviews will be held in Leeds on the 16 January 2018, and successful awardees must be able to commence the fellowship on 1 April, 1 May or 1 June 2018.

DECIDE: DEcisions in health Care to Introduce or Diffuse innovations using Evidence

The Health Foundation

How do NHS decision makers choose when, how or if to introduce innovations in health care?

Researchers in CLAHRC North Thames are looking at evidence use in decision-making in the NHS, and decision-makers’ preferences for different types of evidence. The aim of the study is to improve both the production and use of evidence in decision-making on introducing innovations.

What evidence do decision-makers use? How do they use the evidence available?

To find out, our researchers have created a short 15 minute survey for NHS decision-makers and those involved in the decision making process. They are inviting healthcare professionals from across the country to complete this survey.

Innovations in the NHS can take many forms, from new clinical or administrative processes to new technologies or clinical tools to new clinical or diagnostic pathways. The types of evidence that can be used to justify the adoption or diffusion of an innovation can also take many forms, from ‘hard’ evidence like budget impact to ‘soft’ evidence like staff ‘buy-in’. Understanding these and their relative impacts can help appropriate evidence to be developed for decision-makers to help the adoption of innovation in the NHS. The study is called DECIDE (Decision in health care to introduce or diffuse innovations using evidence) and is funded the Health Foundation and led by Dr Simon Turner.

Find out more and take part

If you would like to find out more click here or to take part in the study, you can do so here.

The survey should take around 15 minutes and is voluntary. No personal details will be asked of you and published reports about this survey will not contain any personal details. If you have any queries, please contact Nicholas Swart at
