Project Details


In response to NIHR's call for Evidence Synthesis Groups: We propose establishing an Evidence Synthesis Group (ESG) across four universities in Scotland and North East England (Edinburgh, Glasgow Caledonian, Stirling and Newcastle) in order to meet our aim of producing and disseminating timely, high quality and impactful evidence syntheses across a wide range of topics relevant to health care, public health and social care, applicable to end users across all four nations of the UK. We will do this by combining methodological, topic and PPI expertise from a number of existing and highly successful evidence synthesis teams and PPI groups co-located within our institutions, with strong, established links to wider networks of experts and end-users of evidence from across the UK. The hub of the ESG will be based in the Usher Institute (University of Edinburgh) and at the Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions Research Unit (NMAHP-RU, Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) and University of Stirling (UoS)); additional core expertise will be provided by UoS social care research and implementation groups and from Newcastle University (clinical and social care).
