School for Primary Care Research, SPCR
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) School for Primary Care Research is a partnership between nine leading academic centers for primary care research in England. SPCR aims to increase the evidence base for primary care practice and to increase research capacity in primary care. The School brings together academics and practitioners from across the UK to collaborate on cutting edge, topical primary care studies that have an impact both at policy level and in general practices around the country. Overarching SPCR themes are: disease prevention and diagnosis; non-communicable disease, multi-morbidity and ageing; acute care; organization and delivery of care; and research innovation and new technologies. In addition to conducting high profile research, SPCR attract the best new researchers into its capacity program and offer support and networking opportunities through an extensive training and events program.
