The April issue of the HERU newsletter is available. In the newsletter we highlight our involvement in a group funded by the Health Foundation to establish a REAL Research Unit on the ‘supply’ side of healthcare, and in a new Aberdeen Belfast Evidence Collaboration to form an NIHR-funded Evidence Synthesis Group. Other new projects featured include, the PAW Trial, investigating the feasibility and acceptability of the Pain-at-Work (PAW) Toolkit; and the ICANEQUAL Partnership aiming to reduce inequalities in liver cancer care.
We also highlight our discrete choice experiment course which takes place in Aberdeen in September and is now open for registration, and our Health Economics for Health Professionals online postgraduate programme. Our Staffing Updates section contains great news on recent promotions, including the award of a Personal Chair for a HERU's Graham Scotland.
