HEDS win more NIHR Doctoral Fellowships

Two more NIHR Doctoral Fellowships have been won by HEDS staff (subject to minor changes).  They are:

Chris Littlewood.  A mixed methods study to evaluate the clinical and cost-effectiveness of a self-managed exercise programme versus usual physiotherapy for chronic rotator cuff disorders.

Jon Tosh. A theoretical and applied methodology for the economic evaluation of sequential therapies for chronic conditions.

Both are expected to start work on these in January 2012.
