Allied Health Professionals need to engage in research to strengthen the evidence of the professions’ value and impact on patient care. Research is needed into complex interventions that are essential to managing acute and long term conditions, and in enhanced service user and community care. To do this AHPs must overcome the barriers and challenges to developing their research capacity. Showcasing our research and establishing networks and partnerships are key elements in research development.
This event is hosted as a collaboration between Sheffield Hallam University, University of Sheffield, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, NIHR CLAHRC Yorkshire and Humber and the NIHR CRN Yorkshire and Humber.
