Identifying Regional Research Priorities Using Roadmapping Techniques
The roadmapping event built on an earlier CLAHRC EoE workshop held in January 2015 which brought together community providers from across the Eastern Region. This first workshop was attended by twenty representatives from four different community services providers and included medical directors, research development leads, NIHR Brain Injury Healthcare Technology Co-operative (Brain Injury HTC) representatives and CLAHRC EoE researchers. It was an exploratory event which highlighted the potential for regional working and the need to identify the key research themes for community services to work on collaboratively. Challenges for the support and development of community based research and its dissemination and implementation across the region were also highlighted as areas which would benefit from CLAHRC EoE support.
The roadmapping event was one of the action points taken forward jointly by CLAHRC EoE and the Brain Injury HTC to share and capture participant perspectives and to try and crystallise the priorities in ways which could either be supported by CLAHRC EoE or the Brain Injury HTC, or provide the infrastructure for bids to other funding sources.
The workshop was facilitated by the University of Cambridge Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) using the roadmapping methodology.
A report was produced detailing the identified research priorities, the executive summary can be downloaded here.
