Adding value in research

We are pleased to announce that research we led to prioritise research topics with families and clinicians in the UK is featured as an example of how the National Institute for Health Research is Adding Value In Research - click on the Pillar 1 of the diagram for the case study.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is the main government agency in the UK that funds health research. The first pillar of Adding Value In Research is ensuring that the questions being researched are those most important to patients, carers, the public and clinicians.

The Childhood Disability Research Priority Setting Partnership successfully prioritised topics suggested by families and clinicians using the methods advocated by the James Lind Alliance. The work was completed in collaboration with the National Network of Parent Carer Forums, Council for Disabled Children and the British Academy of Childhood Disability.
