2 Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre NETSCC: Established: 2008 NIHR Evaluation, Trials and Studies (NETS) programmes Health Technology Assessment Established: 1993 Health Services and Delivery Research Established: January 2012 Public Health Research Established: 2008 Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation Funded by the MRC and NIHR, managed by NIHR Established: 2008 Systematic Review Established: 2012 (previously known as Reviews Infrastructure)

3 HS&DR Programme ►Established and launched in Jan 2012 ►Merger of the Health Services Research (HSR) and Service Delivery and Organisation (SDO) Programmes ►The combined portfolio contains over 300 studies, of which around one hundred are live. Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

4 Purpose and Remit ►The HS&DR programme funds research to produce rigorous and relevant evidence on the quality, accessibility and organisation of health services, including evaluations of how the NHS might improve delivery of services. ►The audience for this research is the public, service users, clinicians and managers. Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

5 Principles The programme will support: ►A range of types of research including evidence synthesis and primary research and is keen to support a variety of ambitious evaluative research to improve health services, on topics of national importance. ►There is no cap on the cost of projects ►Pilot and feasibility studies considered ►Evidence synthesis and empirical studies considered ►Projects which look at the relevant areas of social care as well as health will be considered Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

6 Workstreams The HS&DR programme has two workstreams: ►The commissioned workstream issues calls on specific topics that have been identified as high priority for the NHS and important to NHS managers and decision makers (including an annual HS&DR stakeholder exercise) ►The researcher-led workstream accepts applications from researchers on any question or topic that is within the overall programme remit Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

7 Funding cycle Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

8 Application assessment process Outline proposals: ►Remit and competitiveness check (pre-panel) ►Panel assessment primarily for need and importance to the NHS ►Shortlist/Reject/Resubmit Full proposals: ►External review ►Board assessment primarily for scientific quality, value for money ►Fund/Fund With Changes/Reject/Resubmit Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

9 Selection criteria Importance of the Research ►Adherence to the advertised commissioning brief or call specification ►Health need ►Expressed need ►Sustained interest ►Capacity to generate new knowledge ►Actionable findings and prospects for change Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

10 Selection criteria Research Quality ►Scientific quality ►Links with knowledge users and where appropriate, integration of knowledge users in the knowledge production process ►Service user involvement ►Make up of team and project management ►Value for money Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

11 Five top tips for applicants ►Relevance to wider service Think about ways to increase the generaliseability of findings in the study design. ►Describe clearly the problem, intervention (if part of an evaluation), modelling technique and why selected. ►Get the right people on board – consider range of qual/quant research skills and managerial/NHS expertise. ►Focus on actionable findings for the service and plan the dissemination early, considering range of outputs. ►Read it through! Make the application a compelling case for funding, clearly written and with no typos. Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

12 Recent research calls in priority areas ►Evaluating new models of care for people with long-term conditions ►Interventions to improve support workforce for older people ►New research on community hospitals ►Organising care for frail elderly in hospitals ►Knowledge/innovation transfer ►Avoidable mortality in hospitals ►The organisation and delivery of 24/7 healthcare ►Dignity and compassion ►Psychiatric liaison services ►Alternatives to face to face contact Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

13 Examples of Funded studies Does pay for performance work? Professor Ruth McDonald (University of Nottingham) 60 months, from March 2009 (£749,867) This ambitious five year study evaluates the impact of incentives for teams in particular clinical pathways (such as pneumonia and heart failure) across all 24 acute trusts in one region. How can we manage pain better for inpatients with dementia? Professor Dawn Dowding (University of Leeds) 36 months from October 2012 (£878,539). This ambitious mixed-methods study aims to identify current practice in managing pain for these patients and to develop and test a new tool which can be used on the wards. Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre

14 Examples of Funded studies Is it safer to have your baby in consultant-led units, midwifery-led units or at home? Professor Peter Brocklehurst (UCL Institute for Womens Health) 58 months, from September 2006 (£733,202) This ambitious Birthplace programme of activity centred on a large cohort study of more than 60,000 low-risk births in England. This was designed to answer important questions about the comparative safety and quality of different planned places of birth - from obstetric unit to midwifery units (freestanding and alongside) to home births. Do virtual teams reduce emergency admissions? Dr Geraint Lewis (Nuffield Trust) 20 months, from May 2010 (£318,053). This study considers the costs and impact of virtual wards – identifying patients at high risk of emergency admission and providing support with multidisciplinary teams (including community matrons, general practitioners, pharmacists and social workers).
