Page 1: @Home with Lesley Wye: How researchers can increase their influence and impact on healthcare commissioning decisions

The next @Home session will take place on:

  • Date: Thursday 1 March 2018
  • Time:  3:15pm to 4:05pm
  • Location and room: 5 West, 2.4.

This talk presents Lesley Wye’s findings from her three year National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Knowledge Mobilisation Research fellowship. During this time, Lesley led a Knowledge Mobilisation Team whose aim was to develop collaborative commissioner -researcher projects to bridge the research-practice gap. The team consisted of local healthcare commissioners who were embedded into academic primary care research centre and researchers-in-residence embedded into NHS clinical commissioning groups. Lesley’s talk will provide an opportunity to discuss how researchers can increase their influence on health care policy and practice.
