Recently there has been a dramatic increase in interest in both the 'impact' of research and innovation in all sectors, and the intervention of a new idea or change of practice in the medical and health sector. We have experience in developing a narrative around impact in different sectors, and also the development of parameters which can be used to measure impact in the medical and health sector.
We are able to offer the following:
Project development support to enable the collection and presentation of data and information which would support both the evaluation and impact analysis of a project
Support for the development and evaluation of impact case studies for the REF and other research assessment exercises
Presentations, interactive workshops and training materials to support an increase awareness of the importance of impact and an organisation's strategic development
In the area of medicine and health, a clear understanding of the important of, and difference between, efficacy and effectiveness. This is of particular important to assess the potential impact of new technologies.
