HSC R&D Division would like to draw your attention to the forthcoming NIHR Themed Call Opportunity – Long term conditions in children.


In February 2014 the NIHR will issue a call for evaluative research for long-term conditions in children and young people. The research will 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 2012 annual report of the Chief Medical Officer 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 children’s 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

A further update will be provided in due course.


Kind Regards

HSC R&D Division
