The NIHR has launched a new Centre for Engagement and Dissemination that brings together its activities in patient and public involvement, engagement and participation with its strengths in research dissemination.
Building on the work of the NIHR Dissemination Centre and NIHR INVOLVE, the new Centre will lead NIHR’s work to make health and care research representative, relevant and ready for use.
The NIHR Centre for Engagement and Dissemination will further enhance the strong collaborative culture already established in engaging with patients, service users, carers and the public across the NIHR, providing coordination and thought leadership across the health and care system.
The Centre will be led by the new NIHR Director for Public Voice, Jeremy Taylor OBE.
To coincide with the launch of the new Centre, the NIHR has also established a new website – NIHR Evidence.
NIHR Evidence presents high quality summaries of findings from health and care research, making research informative, accessible, relevant and ready for use for all.
