Knowledge Synthesis Programme

Knowledge Synthesis Programme

Knowledge Syntheses, incorporating modelling and economic evaluation, primarily aim to provide reliable summaries to

  • identify which health care interventions works best, for whom and at which cost;
  • identify ‘proven changes’ that should occur within the health services; and
  • identify gaps where further research is required.

Our Knowledge Synthesis Programme focuses on high quality research to inform health care professionals, policy makers and service users across a wide range of health care interventions, in particular non-drug interventions. The programme relies on experienced research staff with well-established expertise in the conduct of complex evidence syntheses, including mixed method and multi-method designs, and health technology assessments.


Our research activity is generally multidisciplinary involving partners from a range of disciplines and institutions. Patient involvement is actively encouraged particularly through integral involvement of consumer groups. Among our clients there is the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
