NIHR research for social care
This supports research on adult social care that demonstrates strong links to people with social care needs, to social care service users and carers and to organisations that provide adult social care services. Proposals should focus on:
•social care needs and relevant outcomes;
•developing a more robust evidence base for current ways of working;
•developing and evaluating new ways of delivering social care;
•secondary data analysis, record linkage and reviews;
•research methods development;
•care users’ and carers’ circumstances and needs;
•those who deliver social care including unpaid carers and the staff and professionals involved in the delivery of social care.
Applications will be made through universities, local authorities, and NHS bodies or other providers of NHS services in England. Partner organisations from outside of England may be included.
