Our CATCH Researchers working in the Telehealth and Care Technologies Theme (TaCT) have been funded and supported by National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) Yorkshire and Humber (YH) January 2014 - 30th September 2019.

NIHR CLAHRC YH ended on 30th September 2019 and we have produced a number of communications to disseminate our impact and legacy.

The NIHR CLAHRC YH vision was to undertake high quality applied research and evidence-based implementation that is responsive to, and in partnership with, our collaborating organisation, patients, carers and the public. The outcome being an improvement in both the health and wealth of the population of Yorkshire and Humber. The CLAHRC YH principles were Engagement, Co-production, Capacity Building and Addressing Health Inequalities

NIHR CLAHRC YH has produced a final Impact and Legacy brochure which demonstrates a snapshot of the substantial work we have undertaken across the region. It includes examples of the TaCT work on Encompass and on Urban Slums. A leading example of the TaCT work is their Citizen Science database which has supported NIHR CLAHRC YH’s Patient and Public Involvement Core Principle.

To ensure that our work is accessible we have also produced a series of films highlighting a case study from each of our Themes.

You can see the Telehealth and Care Technologies film here: https://youtu.be/9bF-z5WE0zs

The message of the film is to demonstrate that NIHR CLAHRC YH has:

  • been a collaboration
  • is more than the sum of its parts
  • made a difference to people across Yorkshire and Humber
  • produced high quality research

The film has an introduction and a final message which summarises the work that NIHR CLAHRC YH have carried out over the last five years.

The NIHR CLAHRC YH e-repository is a collection of actionable research tools developed by researchers to help address the challenges of translating research into practice. Tools have been developed for use by clinicians, managers, commissioners, patients, educationalists and other researchers. The tools have been co-developed with end users to ensure their relevance and acceptability. The TACT theme has contributed to tools on
