Pharmacy Research UK (PRUK) is delighted to publish annual research report for 2016, which highlights the impact our funding and researchers have had since PRUK’s launch in 2012. The report also takes the opportunity to share with readers our vision for the future.
Since its launch, PRUK has awarded nearly £1.45M to support research capacity building within pharmacy across the UK. This includes funding over 45 projects and supporting over 25 pharmacists to develop their research skills and take their first steps into research. The charity also supports the annual Health Service and Pharmacy Practice Research (HSRPP) Conference, and in partnership with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, provides outreach and training to pharmacy professionals across the UK.
Dr Rachel Joynes, Trust Director at PRUK said:
“We are very pleased to be publishing the 2016 Pharmacy Research UK Research Review which highlights the impact of our funding on improving pharmacy services and patient care. We would like to thank our partners, including the Leverhulme Trade Charities Trust and BOPA, for their continued support for Pharmacy Research UK, enabling us to increase the amount of research that we can fund. We will continue to make steps towards achieving our vision to improve the health of the public through excellence in pharmacy research by building partnerships across sectors and disciplines.”
We sincerely hope you enjoy reading our annual review and would be happy to hear from you should you want to discuss any of its content further at Practice.Research@rpharms.com
