Themed Call: Long term conditions in children and young people (2014)
Date opened: February 2014
Date closed: May 2014
This call supported the annual report of the Chief Medical Officer 2012 entitled “Our Children Deserve Better: Prevention Pays”.
This call was a key component of the NIHR's response to the need for further research-based evidence for long-term conditions in children and young people up to the age of 25 through:
- supporting capacity building across a wide range of disciplines working with children’s health and disabilities;
- increasing the volume of high-quality research on the efficacy, effectiveness, delivery and organisation of interventions and services for children and young people.
The following NIHR-managed research programmes participated:
Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (EME)
Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR)
Health Technology Assessment (HTA)
Invention for Innovation (i4i)
Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR)
