PenCLAHRC Research Prioritisation 2014

Following a first round of electronic voting, PenCLAHRC's 24 partner organisations met on 12th December 2014 to consider and rank a shortlist of questions.

You can read more about each of the questions consider at this meeting in the Priority Briefings.

From this meeting, it has been provisionally agreed that PenCLAHRC will dedicate resources to begin testing the feasibility of the top 3 ranked questions:   

  • In multi-morbid patients taking at least six prescribed medications, can a new model of prescribing reduce treatment burden and optimise individually appropriate medicines? View project page
  • Would Green prescriptions improve patient wellbeing, quality of life and reduce GP visits by patients with complex health problems or mild to moderate depression? View project page
  • Are community rapid intervention services effective in preventing acute hospital admissions in individuals with complex health issues? View project page

Due to the potential relationship that it has with the highest ranked question above, it has also been agreed that the Evidence Synthesis Team will explore the viability of conducting a Systematic Review relating to question ranked No. 5: 

  • Is a home visit service from a community pharmacist effective and cost effective for those who are housebound (due to frailness or complex health needs)? View project page

PenCLAHRC staff will now spend some time collating the available evidence for each of these questions, with an Academic Lead and Research Manager assigned for each. One of the first priorities for each team will be to bring together integral and interested stakeholders from across the collaboration in order to start developing the question further.
