• Call for original research on translating improvement skills and knowledge into front-line implementation.
  • Up to £100,000 available to support one research team for 12 months to generate new knowledge on the barriers and facilitators for translating improvement skills and knowledge capability-building activities into front-line implementation.
  • Closing date for applications is 12 noon Monday 26 October 2015.

In March 2014, the Health Foundation published the findings of ‘Skilled for Improvement’ a research project that worked with improvement groups within two NHS sites to help them to learn collectively about proven improvement methods. This, in addition to other existing research, has created a significant body of evidence that examines and evaluates the provision of capability-building activities to support improvement and transformation. 

To avoid replicating previously undertaken research, we are looking specifically for proposals to support original research into identifying the barriers and facilitators for translating acquired improvement skills and knowledge capability-building activities into implementation in front-line practice. 

More information on the programme aims and funding priorities are available in the Call for applications.
