The National Institute for Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for Yorkshire and Humber (NIHR CLAHRC YH)

From 2008 to 2013 the NIHR funded nine Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRCs) in England.

The CLAHRCs were created to help ensure research evidence was used to improve health services. The CLAHRCs have done this by conducting applied research, translating research into healthcare practice, and increasing the capacity of health services to undertake more applied research and translation in the future.

Funding for 2014 to 2018 for a new cohort of CLAHRCs was awarded in 2013. The pilot CLAHRC for South Yorkshire (CLAHRC SY) and CLAHRC for Leeds, York and Bradford (CLAHRC LYB) 2008 to 2013 have worked together to create an exciting new collaboration encompassing the whole Yorkshire and Humber region. Professor Sue Mawson is the Director and will provide strategic leadership to nine themes:

  • Evidence Based Transformation with the NHS
  • Translating Knowledge into Action
  • Health Economics and Outcome measurements
  • Telehealth and Care technologies
  • Public Health and Inequalities
  • Primary care based management of frailty in older people
  • Avoiding attendance and admissions in long term conditions
  • Mental health co-morbidities
  • Healthy Children, Healthy families

These themes have their own programmes of work and for the next 5 years will continue to deliver exciting applied research with direct impacts on the people and health economy of Yorkshire and Humber.

Sheffield Hallam University and Lab4Living was a member of the pilot CLAHRC in South Yorkshire, providing design input to several projects across different themes and leading one of the themes; User-Centred Healthcare Design. In the Yorkshire and Humber CLAHRC, Sheffield Hallam University is once again a partner with Lab4Living embedded in the Core of the CLAHRC team and in many of its themes. From the outset there is design input and design projects in the following themes:

  • Evidence Based Transformation with the NHS
  • Translating Knowledge into Action
  • Telehealth and Care technologies

with an agenda to grow this across activity to the other CLARHC themes.
