NIHR Health communication and public health messaging

  Wednesday, 16 Nov 2022 | Funding Deadline

The NIHR is commissioning research into the most effective forms of health communication and public health messaging to use during a period of infectious disease/pandemic. The call aims to support robustly designed studies with the potential to improve health outcomes for patients, the public and health and social care services, as well as reducing inequalities. Applicants should clearly state the utility of the outcomes and the mechanisms by which they will inform future health, public health and social care policy and practice.

Studies may include evidence syntheses, studies evaluating interventions, including trials, quasi- and natural experimental evaluations, and feasibility and pilot studies for these. All research proposals should address the potential impact on health inequalities and equity of access.

The following NIHR programmes are accepting applications for this call:
