Guidance for Stage 1 applications

PRP stage 1 template application form

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Policy Research Programme (PRP) invites applications for a single research project that will develop a detailed understanding of the experience of patients who feel that they have had an adverse medical incident or outcome. The focus of the study should be on developing a robust understanding of the motivation, contexts and decision-making journey of those who have and who have not taken legal action.
