Patient Safety Research Collaborations

The NIHR has launched a new, open competition to designate and fund NIHR Patient Safety Research Collaborations (PSRCs) in England.

NIHR PSRCs will undertake high quality translational, applied and health services research on patient safety that addresses strategic patient safety challenges within the health and care system. The aim of the new scheme is to develop, validate and test innovations, approaches and interventions that have the potential to lead to improvements in patient safety and the safety of health and care services. This NIHR PSRC competition represents an evolution from the NIHR Patient Safety Translational Research Centres (PSTRCs) scheme which was established in 2012.

Research for Patient Benefit – Competition 47

The NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) programme is inviting stage 1 applications for research proposals that are concerned with the day-to-day practice of health service staff, and that have the potential to have an impact on the health or wellbeing of patients and users of the NHS.

The programme aims to fund high quality quantitative and qualitative research with a clear trajectory to patient benefit. It particularly encourages applications that have a strong element of interaction with patients and the public and that have been conceived in association with a relevant group of service users.
