Mobilising knowledge to improve UK health care

Huw Davies, Sandra Nutley and Alison Powell have recently been awarded funding for an 18 month research project on knowledge mobilisation approaches used in health care (in the UK and internationally) and in social care and education in the UK.  This 18 month project, which started at the beginning of January, is funded by the NIHR Health Services and Delivery Research programme.  In brief, the aim of the study is to pull together and make available the learning from knowledge mobilisation approaches used at the ‘macro level’ (i.e. approaches used by research funders, major research producers and key research intermediaries). We are defining ‘knowledge mobilisation’ approaches broadly as approaches designed to increase the use and impact of research-based knowledge.
