Our portfolio of previous and current work covers diverse topics from pharmaceutical trials to the evaluation of complex interventions. We currently have studies in the clinical areas of primary care, paediatric diabetes and gastroenterology, with interventions which range from the complex to medicinal products.
We also conduct methodological research around outcomes measures, including the development of new patient reported outcomes and investigations into the impact of different approaches to collecting data from patients on their responses. We are currently running studies across Wales, the UK and Europe.
