2017 Annual NHS R&D Forum

  Monday, 15 May 2017 | Events/Workshops

The 2017 Annual NHS R&D Forum in association with the Health Research Authority is the meeting of the year for the health and care research management, support and leadership workforce. 2017’s theme is “Adding Value Together” which embraces all roles, research teams, and partners; clinical and non-clinical, university and industry, charitable and policy sector.

The theme for 2017 aims to showcase the value in an R&D function and how by coming together as a National community of practice it adds value to the NHS, research and policy, patients and the public, and of course each other.

Abstracts are invited for breakout presentations, posters and discussion groups that will share practice and innovative solutions, stimulate discussion, and support learning in at least one of the following four themes:

  • Adding value
  • Doing more with less
  • Working better together
  • On the horizon

The deadline for abstracts is Monday 9 January 2017.
