The Health Foundation

The Behavioural Insights Research Programme aims to support research over a two to three year timeframe that designs, tests and evaluates behavioural interventions that can improve efficiency and reduce waste within health care services in the UK.

The programme also seeks to support research that increases our understanding of how to better implement and spread behavioural interventions in a UK health care context.

Researchers to submit ideas rooted in ‘behavioural insights’ or ‘nudge theory’ across three key areas of interest:

  • Patient pathways eg. improving patient flow within the system, improving coordination and transfer of care, as well as expediting discharge.
  • Procurement, pharmacy and medicines optimisation eg. minimising cost and waste in procurement and prescribing, as well as improving medication adherence.
  • Care best practice eg encouraging attendance, uptake of screening and health promotion by making every contact count; reducing unnecessary or ineffective care; better demand management and reducing harms.

Deadline for applications: 12.00 noon, 20 October 2017.

World Cancer Research Fund International

This Regular Grant Programme funds research into the effects of diet, nutrition (including body composition) and physical activity on cancer prevention and survivors and focuses on two main themes:

  • Identifying the mechanisms that underpin the effects of diet, nutrition and physical activity on cancer
  • Addressing the host factors that influence an individual’s susceptibility to cancer development or progression

For the research area of cancer survivors, this fund also encourages broader research into the identification of likely causal links between diet, nutrition, physical activity and outcomes after cancer diagnosis, as robust evidence on these links is still lacking.

Bright Ideas in Health Awards

The Bright Ideas in Health Awards 2017 is delivered by RTC North in partnership with the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria and the NIHR Clinical Research Network North East and North Cumbria.

The Awards celebrate the achievements of individuals and teams working within the NHS, industry and academia, who have risen to the challenge of telling us how, and where, they believe that improvements to the service provided to patients can be improved, either through a technical innovation or through better service delivery.

Everyone can play a part in developing innovative solutions to the healthcare challenges that we face every day. The competition, depending upon the category, is open to all SMEs, NHS organisations and academic institutions in the North East of England and North Cumbria.

The Bright Ideas in Health Awards 2017 is now open for entries.
