The NIHR Policy Research Programme (PRP) invites applications for a single research project to undertake a qualitative evaluation of the national implementation of a seven element care pathway focused on improving the optimisation and stabilisation of the preterm infant.

The research seeks to explore how multiple clinical teams work together to make decisions regarding optimisation and stabilisation and to explore the experiences of care that women and families receive through this pathway, in addition to the impact on staff of caring for pre-term infants, women and families.

All applications must be made through the Research Management System (RMS).
