The Health and Social Care Delivery Research (HSDR) Programme is accepting stage one applications to this funding opportunity.
We invite applications to address key evidence gaps to improve the organisation, delivery and quality of home care services across the UK, including the evaluation of new models of organising and delivering home care services. These Social care services are delivered in people’s own homes by professional carers or domiciliary care services and might include help with activities such as getting out of bed, washing and dressing, using the toilet, preparing meals and remembering to take medicines. In addition, care may be provided for clinical areas such as PEG feeding, catheter management and end-of-life care.
In order to apply for this call you will need to carefully review the following documents:
All primary research projects are expected to establish a programme appointed Study Steering Committee and it is important that you read the Research Governance Guidelines before completing your application. Costs incurred by this committee should be included in the budget as appropriate.
