What is the Patient Report­ed Mea­sures Research Col­lab­o­ra­tive Grant? 

This research fund­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty engages consumers/​consumer groups, clin­i­cians and researchers to under­take research in patient report­ed mea­sures. This will be deliv­ered through the cre­ation of con­sumer and aca­d­e­m­ic part­ner­ships with­in health to work togeth­er on a research project that builds research capa­bil­i­ty and capac­i­ty in PRMs research excellence. 

The objec­tives of the PRM Research Col­lab­o­ra­tive Grant oppor­tu­ni­ty is to:

  • sup­port a col­lab­o­ra­tive research project between con­sumers, researchers, and health­care organisations
  • embed applied research that has poten­tial impact on health ser­vice deliv­ery, through the imple­men­ta­tion of patient expe­ri­ence and out­come measures
  • build research capa­bil­i­ty and capac­i­ty in con­sumer-led PRMs research across the health sec­tor in SA 
  • Pro­mote the trans­la­tion of research to clin­i­cal practice

The Grant is pro­vid­ed by the Com­mis­sion on Excel­lence and Inno­va­tion in Health (CEIH) and is once-off fund­ing for a research project to sup­port and pro­mote con­sumer-led research in patient report­ed measures.
