The aim of the NIHR Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Programme is to ensure that high quality research information on the clinical effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and broader impact of healthcare treatments and tests are produced in the most efficient way for those who plan, provide or receive care from NHS and social care services.
The HTA Programme is accepting Stage 1 applications to their commissioned workstream for this topic. The HTA programme is interested in proposals for the evaluation of the effectiveness and economic analysis of music-based interventions to improve the care and support for people living with dementia and carers. This is a commissioned call of broader scope from which the Health Technology Assessment Programme is interested in potentially funding more than one proposal. Applicants should clearly define and justify their choice of target group with particular focus on the setting and delivery of the intervention. The study focus and design should be defined and justified by applicants and are not limited to the examples given in the brief.
The programme would be interested in new and innovative methodologies, measures and outcomes appropriate to the population and intervention. In order to apply you will need to carefully review the Commissioning brief, Stage 1 application supporting information and Stage 1 guidance notes.
The call closes at 1pm on 29th November 2023.
