Welcome to CLAHRC Oxford's First Newsletter of 2016

2015 was an exciting year for the CLAHRC. A number of our researchers won national and international awards for their work, including Dr Jane FosseyProfessor Michael Sharpe and Dr Daniel Lasserson.

Towards the end of last year, we took stock of what we and our partners, by working together, have managed to achieve over the last year or so. We've produced a short review highlighting some of the many successes we've had so far.

Included among these was our 2015 Stakeholder Symposium, more on which you can find below.

Exploring collaboration: The 2015 CLAHRC Stakeholder Symposium

Nearly 100 people from over 20 organisations came together under one roof in late November last year. Their purpose? To identify new opportunities for collaboration in health and social care and to explore the barriers and facilitators to collaboration.
Find out more in our news and video summary of the event.

Web Content: Refreshed

We've been working hard behind the scenes to make it easier to understand our aims and research themes.
We've refreshed our 'About Us' page with a video from our Director, Professor Richard Hobbs, explaining what CLAHRC Oxford is and what we do.
And we've also added new video content to each of our theme pages, explaining some of the exciting applied research we help fund.

Project Highlight: Back Skills Training

Suffer from back pain?
Back Skills Training (BeST), part of our 'Health behaviours and behavioural interventions' theme, is a new evidence-based treatment for patients with low back pain.

The benefits of BeST have been shown to last up to 36 months after treatment and significantly improve patient’s quality of life and satisfaction compared to usual care.

Our research revolves around understanding how we can better train NHS clinicians in how to deliver the BeST programme using an online training package.

You can read more about the project here, or visit the Back Skills Training website.
