Imbalances in funding for clinical and public health research in the UK: can NICE research recommendations make a difference?
Abstract:National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommendations for further research often focus on access, prevention and health promotion, and include population groups traditionally excluded from clinical trials, such as children and minority ethnic groups. NICE and its advisory bodies are starting to work with the National Institute for Health Research to promote research into the clinical and cost-effectiveness of public health interventions. More streamlined interaction between public funders and policy makers could help drive public R&D (Research & Development) investment towards under-researched areas such as prevention, equity and access, and strengthen the evidence base that underpins NICE guidance and broader clinical and public health practice in the UK.
