Evidence

NIHR Evidence

Health research must be informative, accessible and relevant to the public, patients, clinicians, health professionals, researchers, policy makers and health service managers. NIHR Evidence presents high quality summaries of findings so that health and care research can be used by all members of society.

We hope to produce our summaries in close collaboration with those who might use them, including clinicians, commissioners, patients and the public. If you'd like to help us to decide which research findings should feature on NIHR Evidence then sign up to become a reviewer.
