Role in Research

The CHA actively encourages research and evaluation in community hospitals in order to inform practice and improve patient care.
  • Applying knowledge from research
  • Transferring learning from good practice
  • Informing planning for appropriate services
  • Sharing ways in which communities support their community hospital
  • Securing excellence in patient care
  • Bringing new knowledge, information, evidence, updates and resources on community hospitals.

The CHA has been making a case for a funded programme of research for many years, and is delighted that the NIHR has now accorded this topic a priority.  The CHA sits on the project boards of the cross-study group and the research teams.  Our research network actively supports the work of the teams, such as by commenting on surveys, supporting follow-ups to surveys, and helping to validate and interpret findings.
