Long-term Conditions in Children and Young People Themed Call
The NIHR is issuing a call for evaluative research for long-term conditions in children and young people. The research should 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 annual report of the Chief Medical Officer 2012 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 childrens’ 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.
For further information please visit the themed call website.
Applications can be made through Competition 24 (opens on 26 February 2014) and Competition 25 (opens in late June 2014) – please see our How to apply page for more information.
Final funding decisions will be made by late November 2014 (Competition 24) and March 2015 (Competition 25).
