The CIPH hosts the Public Health Implementation and the End of Life themes of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health and Care for Cambridgeshire andPeterborough(CLAHRC CP).
Nine NIHR CLAHRCs were established during 2008 to undertake high quality applied health research focused on the needs of patients and to support the translation of research evidence into practice in the NHS. CLAHRC CP is a collaborative partnership between the University of Cambridge and a consortium of NHS and Social Service organisations; these include the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (which acts as its host), NHS Cambridgeshire, NHS Peterborough, Cambridgeshire County Council and the East of England Strategic Health Authority. The Cambridge University component includes the Department of Psychiatry, the Institute of Public Health, the Judge Business Schooland the Engineering Design Centre.
The Cambridge & Peterborough CLAHRC takes a life course approach and focuses on people with mental illness, learning disability, acquired brain injury, and care for those approaching the end of life. Improving transitions between services and simplifying convolutions in current care pathways are particular objectives that draw upon principles of engineering design and management theory in order to implement new knowledge. The Cambridge & Peterborough CLAHRC is a multi-disciplinary project with the three research themes cross-cut by two implementation themes
