The National Institute for Health Research’s (NIHR) Health Technology Assessment (HTA) programme has launched a call for applications in a number of research areas, one of which is ‘Supported self management of diabetes in people with learning disability’.
The HTA programme funds independent research about the costs, effectiveness and broader impact of methods used by health professionals to promote health; prevent, diagnose or treat disease or improve rehabilitation and long-term care. It commissions research in three different ways: by advertising standard calls for research proposals that address specific topics, by advertising special calls for research proposals that address themed areas, and by funding HTA clinical trials and evaluation studies that are proposed directly by researchers.
The NIHR HTA programme is funded by the NIHR, with contributions from the Chief Scientist Office in Scotland and the National Institute for Social Care and Health Research Clinical Research in Wales.
