We don’t talk nearly enough about social care research. I sometimes wonder whether we have ‘over-medicalised’ the health research agenda at times, so that all we shout about are new medicines and treatments – me included. It is a trend that seems counter to the needs of our society and also the changes in the way services are delivered to meet these.
NIHR have today posted the presentations from their joint conference with the LSE in November last year detailing funding opportunities in this area. Worth a look for those in the field, but hopefully it might inspire others to turn their attention to some of the really exciting stuff that needs to be done here.
