NIHR Evidence

We believe that everyone should have easy access to research. On NIHR Evidence, you’ll find plain language summaries of health and care research that’s funded by the NIHR. Our summaries can help you to make informed decisions about health and care – whether you’re a member of the public, a health or care professional, commissioner or policy maker.

Every year, thousands of NIHR-funded studies are published in academic journals. But they’re packed with scientific jargon and can be difficult to understand. We select the most important findings and make them easy to read. We cover single studies (Alerts), and bring together research on specific themes or topics (Collections and Themed Reviews).

Dignity Action Day

Dignity Action Day is an annual opportunity for health and social care workers and members of the public to uphold people’s dignity in care. The day is all about ensuring that people who use care services, particularly vulnerable people, are treated as individuals.

NIHR Evidence publishes a range of research highlighting the importance of dignity in care. Read more below.
