Day 2 - 22nd April

NIHR Evaluation, Trials and Studies Co-ordinating Centre (NETSCC) Workshop
This interactive workshop will be facilitated by staff from NETSCC. It will give delegates a unique insight into developing research questions which are suitable for funding by the NIHR Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Programme. During the workshop, delegates will be invited to share and discuss their ideas for HTA research around perioperative care. Research questions identified during the workshop will be referred to the Programme and, if prioritised, will be advertised in an open call for applications.

Delegates are asked to give some thought to areas of their clinical practice where further evidence of clinical and cost effectiveness is required. Suggestions for research should fall within the HTA remit. This covers "research about the effectiveness, costs and broader impact of healthcare treatments and tests for those who plan, provide or receive care in the NHS". See for more information. PICO is a widely used format for defining research questions. The PICO pro-forma below may be helpful when thinking about your ideas.
