Other NIHR research

As well as publishing full and complete accounts of research funded through NIHR programmes in the NIHR Journals Library, we also produce research through other NIHR initiatives.

This section of the website provides access to some of the other NIHR research published outside of the NIHR Journals Library. This research follows varying editorial, production and publication models, which differ to NIHR Journals Library articles, and is currently produced from the following NIHR sources.

Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and NIHR Collaboration on guidance for taking context into account in population health intervention research

This report is the output from a collaboration between the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) – Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH) and the UK National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR). The report provides guidance on taking context into account in population health intervention research (PHIR) for producers, users and funders of population health intervention research (PHIR). The report includes international case examples to help researchers to think about dimensions of context that might be significant in population health interventions. The work was funded by CIHR – IPPH and NIHR.

NIHR Schools

The NIHR has established three national schools: the School for Primary Care Research (SPCR), the School for Public Health Research (SPHR) and the School for Social Care Research (SSCR). The national schools represent a unique collaboration between the leading academic centres in England.

School for Primary Care Research

The School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) brings together academics and practitioners in the leading academic centres for primary care research in England to conduct research to benefit patients and the public. In addition, the School provides a setting where clinical and non-clinical trainees can benefit from the leadership of researchers at the top of their field and where supplementary training, networking, mentoring and guidance is part of the added value that the School environment brings.

School for Public Health Research

Established in April 2012, the School for Public Health Research (SPHR) is a partnership between eight leading academic centres with excellence in applied public health research in England. The School aims to build the evidence base for effective public health practice. SPHR research looks at what works practically to improve population health and reduce health inequalities, what can be applied across the country and better meets the needs of policymakers, practitioners and the public.

School for Social Care Research 

The School for Social Care Research (SSCR) was established in May 2009, and extended for a further five years from May 2014, to develop the evidence base to inform and improve adult social care practice in England. SSCR commissions and carries out world-class research across broad themes encompassing the wide range of care and support that is available to and used by adults; the diversity of services and service providers of adult social care; and care and support provided through and with unpaid care, communities, self-care and self-funded care.
