Centre for Applied Research in Improvement and Innovation in Health and Social Care
We conduct transformational research that makes a difference to the ways that health and social care is delivered
The work of CApRII seeks to understand experiences of illness, health, disability and disadvantage across the life course through a user-centred, integrated programme of research, service evaluation and needs assessment and consultation.
We focus on the development and evaluation of novel approaches to service delivery, and we investigate innovation in health and social care roles and the ways we deliver education to the health and social care workforce at all levels.
The Centre has expertise in:
- The identification and management of long term conditions and pain,
- The use of assistive technology in rehabilitation,
- The needs of marginalised and under-served groups in health care services and the criminal justice system,
- The decision making, judgement and assessment of risk in health and social care practice,
- Methods of patient involvement and co-production,
- The education and development of health care professionals
- Workforce modelling and staffing levels.
Our work often has an impact on policy and service delivery e.g. Dr Andrew Whittaker’s study on gangs has prompted a local council to invest in drug prevention programmes; Professor Jane Wills work on the health of nurses prompted a review of the hydration policies in hospitals; Dr Eddie Chaplin’s work is changing the ways in which the criminal justice system addresses the needs of people with neuro-developmental disorders.
Our staff are highly recognised in their areas of practice: Professor Alison Leary has been named one of the most influential people in Nursing today and Professor Nicola Thomas has been recognised by the British Renal Society.
Our staff are highly esteemed in their fields, editing international journals, being members of NICE clinical guideline development groups, being research grant reviewers and several hold joint clinical appointments.
