1
Research Excellence Framework Institutes for
Applied Health and Society and Social Justice
Research
  • Professor Francine Cheater, Director IAHR
  • Professor Jackie Tombs, Director ISSJR

2
Rationale
  • Maximise academic returns-coherent themes in
    areas of recognised strength
  • Critical mass (collectively stronger)
  • Sustainability
  • Widen pool of complementary expertise
    experience
  • Interactions-potential for fresh thinking, novel
    approaches
  • Funding Opportunities
  • Infrastructure- economies of scale
  • Distinctive research identity

3
The Humpty Dumpty Problem
  • To understand the world it has seemed
  • necessary to break it into many pieces
  • (i.e. the disciplines and their own divisions).
    Try
  • as we may we are no more able to than all the
  • kings horses and all the kings men to put our
  • knowledge together again for coping with the
  • whole real problems of the world.
  • (Easton D. 1991, Divided knowledge across
    disciplines, across cultures, Am. Academy
  • of Arts Sciences)

Close collaboration with
  • Centre for the Social History of Health
    Healthcare
  • Director Professor John Stewart
  • Yunus Centre for Social Business Health

7
ISSJR Research Environment
  • International academic symposia, colloquia,
    conferences and seminars
  • National and international research
    collaborations and networks
  • Collaborations with research users and
    contributions to policy initiatives/objectives
  • Research student seminar series
  • Mentoring
  • Peer Review
  • Public policy, economic analysis and social
    justice

8
ISSJR Research Pump Priming Awards
  • Cross-disciplinary across GCU
  • Collaborative with other universities
  • High quality research outputs
  • Future plans exciting

9
  • - Mechanisms causes of disease, diagnosis,
    treatments
  • Describing the problem (epidemiology,
  • social determinants, environment, patient
    experience)
  • Evidence synthesis
  • Developing evaluating Interventions
  • Economic analysis
  • Policy analysis
  • Implementation into practice/policy
  • Theory/methodological development

10
Features of Leading Research Groups (RAE 2008
Health)
  • Strategic approach, strong leadership clear
    research foci
  • Record securing competitive funding
  • Strategy for sustainability, succession planning,
    capacity building recruitment/support of ECRs.
  • Investment in research groups infrastructure
  • Critical mass in research groups, no lone
    researchers
  • Methodological diversity, innovative research
    approaches
  • Multidisciplinarity- as required, to address
    complex research questions of health social
    care
  • Strong interface with NHS, professional bodies,
    policy makers /or industry
  • Public engagement/service user involvement

11
RESEARCH GROUPS
  • Individual, Family Community Interventions
  • Lead Professor Paul Flowers

Environment
  • Workshops, local, national international

    programme
  • Regular research group meetings (e.g. shared
    agenda, 3 -Year activity plans, mentoring and
    peer review) cross institute activity
  • Capitalising on high impact opportunities
  • Pump Priming Research Initiative-high quality
    outputs next stage activity
  • Infrastructure (e.g. access to imaging, stats
    economics expertise, research support)
  • Interface with NHS, professional bodies, third
    sector, policy makers /or industry
  • Public engagement/service users involvement

14
Managing Tensions
  • Building groups (teams) effectively for medium
    and long term but need to deliver in short term
    (REF 2014)
  • Maintaining motivation and momentum during a
    period of uncertainty linked to University
    restructuring
  • Building capacity, supporting ECRs while
    delivering outputs (top heavy profile in some
    areas)
  • Setting ambitious but realistic goals on which
    we can deliver
