NIHR Workshop on long-term conditions in children and young people
Researcher Briefing Event
Wednesday 5 February 2014
In February 2014 the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) will issue a call for evaluative research for long-term conditions in children and young people. The research will aim to provide the evidence base to improve the health outcomes for children and young people that result from long-term conditions. The call is in support of the 2012 annual report of the Chief Medical Officer entitled “Our Children Deserve Better: Prevention Pays”
This call is a key component of the NIHR response to the need for further research-based evidence for long-term conditions in children and young people up to the age of 25 through:
- supporting capacity building across a wide range of disciplines working with children's health and disabilities;
- increasing the volume of high-quality research on the efficacy, effectiveness, delivery and organisation of interventions and services for children and young people.
The purpose of this workshop is to inform the research community about research funding opportunities presented by the themed call. 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 workshops will be made up of three identical sessions and delegates will be able to register to attend either in the morning, afternoon or early evening.
To register your interest in attending the event, please visit https://bookwhen.com/nihr. Once the booking form has been completed, you will receive an email asking you to click on the link to confirm your interest in attending. Please ensure you do this to register your interest.
Registration will close at 12 noon on Wednesday 11 December. Note that places may be limited per organisation. We will be in touch by 19 December to let you know if you have been allocated a place at the event and to which session.
If you aren’t allocated a space, you will be able to view the presentations and supporting information online following the workshop.
