Cardiff Health and Social Care Improvement Research

Working across disciplines to improve the quality of health and social care.

Cardiff Health and Social Care Improvement Research

We work in partnerships and across disciplines to improve the quality of health and social care for patients.

Everyone wants high quality care at times of sickness or vulnerability. Yet health and social care systems are some of the most complex known to society.

Research is essential to identify problems, develop solutions and understand how lasting, workable and replicable improvements in healthcare can be made effectively and faster to benefit patients.

Amcanion

Cardiff Health and Social Care Improvement Research is a Cardiff University Research Network that unites 13 Schools and harnesses our multidisciplinary expertise to address the following six aims:

  • safety - avoiding harm to patients from care intended to help them
  • effectiveness - providing services based on scientific knowledge to all who could benefit and refraining from providing services to those not likely to benefit
  • patient-centeredness - providing care that is respectful of and responsive to individual preferences, needs, and values
  • timeliness - reducing waits and harmful delays for those who receive and those who give care
  • efficiency - avoiding waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas, and energy
  • equity - providing care that does not vary in quality because of personal characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, geographic location, and socioeconomic status.

Please get in touch with Professor Davina Allen, if you would like to hear more, or if you're interested in joining the Network.

Steering group

Our research is founded on strong partnerships with NHS and governmental partners, industrial collaborators, patient advocacy groups, professional associations, third sector organisations, scientific societies and other internationally leading research institutions in our field.
