Integrating research into practice: the CLAHRC experience – NHS Confederation – 19 June 2012

“The NHS’s ability to harness innovation to improve patient outcomes is more important than ever in a tough financial climate. Uniquely among the organisations supporting this agenda, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRCs) have integrated research and implementation to ensure findings improve practice in real time.

They carry out high-quality applied health research and support getting research evidence into practice in the NHS. It has been said that getting research into practice takes 17 years; CLAHRCs have shown that it’s possible within three years through collaborative partnership working. They provide a powerful model to connect innovation, evidence and implementation.

The NHS Confederation has been closely involved in the work of CLAHRCs and continues to host their national support function. This Briefing describes the CLAHRC approach and their impact to date as well as the factors that continue to contribute to their successes.”
