Translating Research into Practice in Leeds and Bradford
Translating Research into Practice in Leeds and Bradford (TRiP-LaB) is a research partnership between the University of York, NHS Bradford & Airedale and Leeds Partnerships NHS Foundations Trust.
TRiP-LaB is developing, implementing, and evaluating methods for inducing and sustaining the uptake of research knowledge into practice in order to improve the quality of health services for the people of Leeds and Bradford. Our approach has three phases:
Phase 1: Helping our NHS Trusts partners develop evidence informed strategies for increasing the uptake of health care interventions and service improvements identified as key local priorities
Phase 2: Helping our NHS Trusts partners implement these strategies
Phase 3: Evaluating changes in professional and managerial behaviour and processes of care over time and where appropriate changes in patient outcomes.
Currently, we are working with NHS Bradford and Airedale to translate research-based knowledge into practice in the areas of maternal mental health and stroke care, and with Leeds Partnership Foundation Trust to enhance the implementation of key aspects of NICE guidance relating to schizophrenia.
Also as part of TRiPLaB, CRD is providing a free knowledge translation service to support evidence informed decision making by local commissioners and decision makers. We recently produced a briefing on models of service provision for adolescents with eating disorders to inform a possible reorganisation of services in Bradford and Airedale. This work was well received by the commissioners and was highlighted in the NIHR Annual Report as an example of using evidence to change NHS service provision.Conducted by: Duncan Chambers1, Paul Wilson1 with Carl Thompson2, Andria Handbury2, Kate Farley2, John Bibby3, Heather Sharp3, Erica Warren3
