NIHR Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation Programme: Mitigation of the adverse effects of health and social care interventions

Stage 1 applications are invited for this call on the ‘Mitigation of the adverse effects of health and social care interventions’.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel interventions to reduce adverse effects (e.g. to stop misprescribing)
  • Novel interventions to identify patients at increased risk of adverse effects
  • Studies to stratify patients to an established treatment that has very severe adverse effects
  • Development of health technologies which promise an improved safety profile.
  • Additive interventions which may improve the safety profile of existing technologies
  • Pharmacogenomic strategies to mitigate the risks of exaggerated or diminished drug responses.

Deadline:  1pm on 16th April 2020

The EME programme will run a webinar to support applications for this call on Tuesday 21st January, 12-1pm.

This funding call relates to the NCRI LWBC James Lind Alliance Priority #6: “How can the short-term, long-term and late effects of cancer treatments be a) prevented and/or b) best treated/managed?
