CLAHRC 2012 review – service improvement case studies

The NHS Confederation has produced a review of CLAHRCs which contains a collection of service improvement case studies from across the nine collaborations.

The review features service-driven improvements identified, evaluated and delivered through NIHR CLAHRCs. The case studies highlight how CLAHRCs are working with decision makers to identify research priorities and service improvement opportunities; enabling patient engagement in the research agenda to improve services, patient outcomes, and spread improvement beyond the regional collaboration. Read the review here.

For more resources on the CLAHRCs, including links to their websites, other NHS Confederation briefings and to view back editions of the CLAHRC Community e-newsletter, see here.
