South Yorkshire CLAHRC Health Economics Newsletter

Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) are collaborative partnerships between universities and the surrounding NHS organisations, focused on improving patient outcomes through the conduct and application of applied health research.  Their emphasis is on the translation and implementation of research in the NHS, rather than treating research as an end product.  Nine CLAHRCs were funded by the NIHR and the CLAHRC for South Yorkshire is based in Sheffield.

Their latest newsletter showcases five research projects where health economists within ScHARR have played important roles.  They are:
  • Neonatal screening
  • Assissted living for patients with chronic conditions
  • Self management of diabetes in adolescents
  • Services for long-term depression
  • Health inequalities
Details of these projects are available here.
