In early 2015, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) will issue a call for research into the evaluation of interventions or services delivered for older people with multimorbidity (defined as the co-occurrence of two or more chronic conditions in one person).
This call is an initiative by the NIHR in recognition of the need for further research based evidence to support the delivery of best care to people with multimorbidities and to enable them to maintain their capabilities and quality of life.
Ahead of this call it will host an briefing workshop for potential applicants on Tuesday 27 January 2015. The workshop is open to all those in any discipline who are working, or interested in working, in research relating to Multimorbidities in older people. Representatives from a range of NIHR programmes and supporting NIHR infrastructure will attend to advise on the various funding routes available and provide help and guidance on developing and submitting an application.
