What difference does research make?
We are interested in finding the local impact research has had on practices, patients and staff and how taking part in research may have influenced practice.
Impacts were captured using a short survey which is sent to local NHS organisations taking part in studies. Summaries based on the impact survey responses on a study by study basis can be viewed below.
The Research Office and the CRN East of England Norfolk & Waveney Research Delivery Team based at Norfolk Community and Healthcare NHS Trust, adapted the VICTOR Tool (making Visible the ImpaCT Of Research is a tool which has been co-produced with NHS organisations to help identify and capture the impact of taking part in research within their organisation) for use in primary care. The tool was piloted by the CRN East of England Norfolk & Waveney Research Delivery Team to gather responses from VIRUS Watch Study participants. A summary of the responses can be viewed below.
A summary based on direct feedback from the Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust Speech and Language Therapy Team on impacts of The Big Cactus Study is also presented below.
To let us know of any impacts that research has had on practice locally, please email us on NWICB.RandDoffice@nhs.net.
