Health Service Research
Health Services Research is of paramount importance if laboratory based developments are to become realistic treatment options within any healthcare system. The research in this area focuses on efficacy, efficiency and effectiveness of new treatments, therapies and ways of providing healthcare. The focus is on clinical, patient and cost outcomes to ensure that a true evaluation of technological innovation takes place. CITER has access to a wide range of patients and expertise in the area of clinical trials, epidemiology and statistics, giving a sound foundation on which to expand this important area of health service analysis.
