It’s that time of year again to get your local NHS Trust to enter this year’s Health Service Journal (HSJ) ’Progressive Research Culture’ Award. This follows the success of last year’s award which saw over 40 Trusts enter. Further details from the NIHR CRN CC website. I’m delighted that the nine criteria include these two:
- Evidence of enhanced patient engagement and contribution to strategic decision-making about research
- Evidence of how the adoption of clinical research study findings has led to significant service improvement and/or improved patient outcomes
Closing date for entries is 6th July 2012.
