Regional research and development network supporting professions allied to medicine

Regional research and development network supporting professions allied to medicine Six professions allied to medicine (PAMs) participated in a one‐year project designed to provide a novel self‐sustaining framework within which to increase research and development effectiveness in the Northern and Yorkshire region. The project was based on recognition that the multiplicity and diversity of professional structures and lack of representation of clinical PAMs were obstacles to effective governance. All 37 clinical NHS trusts within the Region took part. The professions selected to participate were chiropody and podiatry, dietetics, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and therapeutic radiography. A planned process of consultation and consensus was used involving Trust representatives, development workers and advisory group. A PAMs R&D network and forum were achieved and operate at three levels: Trust; locality; and region. Access to existing structures is facilitated at each level and the Forum offers a reliable and rapid route for transfer of information, engagement with R&D and consultation with policy initiatives. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png British Journal of Clinical Governance Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Six professions allied to medicine (PAMs) participated in a one‐year project designed to provide a novel self‐sustaining framework within which to increase research and development effectiveness in the Northern and Yorkshire region. The project was based on recognition that the multiplicity and diversity of professional structures and lack of representation of clinical PAMs were obstacles to effective governance. All 37 clinical NHS trusts within the Region took part. The professions selected to participate were chiropody and podiatry, dietetics, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and therapeutic radiography. A planned process of consultation and consensus was used involving Trust representatives, development workers and advisory group. A PAMs R&D network and forum were achieved and operate at three levels: Trust; locality; and region. Access to existing structures is facilitated at each level and the Forum offers a reliable and rapid route for transfer of information, engagement with R&D and consultation with policy initiatives.
