Projects in the Centre for Health and Clinical Research
Researchers in the centre have secured funding for projects that have resulted in real scientific, social and economic benefits.
We are currently undertaking a range of projects.
Read more about the differences some of our projects are making:
Complex and long-term healthcare
A comparison of wards for people with dementia using patient engagement time (PET) with other wards delivering standard care alone.
Emergency and critical care
Professor Jonathan Benger is leading a programme of work to improve outcomes from Cardiac Arrest.
UWE is providing clinical leadership and research expertise in a European project to design and build a better emergency ambulance.
Children and young people
Researchers at UWE working with collaborators from the Universities of Bristol, Cardiff and Bath. A programme of studies tackle research questions on the prevention, care and rehabilitation from burns and scalds in children and young people.
‘Baby Buddy’ is a free mobile phone app for parents and parents-to-be with personalised content approved by doctors and midwives that spans from pregnancy right through to the first six months after birth.
Health, ethics and society
Professor Julie Kent, a sociologist from the Centre of Health and Clinical Research and Department of Health and Applied Social Sciences is collaborating on a national project that will inform public policy to make UK blood services safer.
Public involvement in research
The project, funded by the NIHR Health Services Research programme and INVOLVE, is concerned with finding the factors that enable members of the public (e.g. patients, service users, carers, families) to effectively contribute to and influence health-related research.
The project, led by Cardiff University, with teams from Bath University, University of Bristol and UWE, aims to design and implement a framework and methodology to evidence the value of the West of England Academic Health Science Network (WEAHSN).
