The “Collaborating Working Accomplishment” category recognises excellent collaborations that achieved multidisciplinary working between NHS organisations and academic institutions to achieve demonstrable success. NWAS partnered with the International Observatory on End of Life Care at Lancaster University, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust and partners across the North West to adapt and evaluate a free, online advance care planning training programme, ACP Support, for use by health care providers.
For the category of the “Primary Care or Community Research Contribution”, HART Paramedic Steven Thompson has been shortlisted for his project, testing if technology such as virtual reality can bring a new approach to training and preparedness for mass casualty incidents as part of his Master of Science Degree in Emergency Medicine and Resuscitation.
Sandra Igbodo, Research Manager, said, “We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Greater Manchester Health and Care Research Awards. This recognition is a testament to the enthusiasm staff have for supporting research across our organisation. Thank you to all our colleagues who participated in the projects.”
The awards will return for the first time since 2019 following the COVID-19 pandemic and the ceremony takes place at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester, on the evening of Thursday 29 September 2022.
