King's and NICE
Posted on 25/05/2012
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between King’s College London and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). The aim is to build upon the research, teaching, service development and capacity building activities currently undertaken by both organisations with the emphasis on exploring new research programmes that will benefit local, national and international populations.
The day to day running of the MoU is overseen by a steering committee and it has already had its first meeting. The lead people within King’s are Prof Charles Wolfe and Prof Peter Littlejohns from the Division of Health & Social Care Research (Department of Primary Care & Public Health Sciences), and Gillian Leng and Kalipso Chalkidou represent the Institute. The steering committee has agreed a joint research programme to develop innovative approaches to implementing evidence into practice in order to improve public health.
The proposed projects cover a range of health and social care settings and will also address global health priorities.
