The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Policy Research Programme (PRP) invites applications for a single research project to investigate the demand for and supply of therapies for children and young people (CYP) with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
The overall aim of this research is to help us understand the gaps between the supply of therapies and the demand for therapy in children and young people with SEND with a focus on occupational therapy (OT), speech and language therapy (SaLT) and physiotherapy to inform planning about the supply of therapists. Outputs should include models which can provide estimates of demand for therapies against workforce supply to meet this demand.
There is an introductory webinar via Zoom on 21 September 2023; 9:30am. You can sign up using the registration form.
Further information can be found in the research specification, Stage 1 applicant guidance and standard information for applicants.
The submission deadline for applications is 1pm on 24 October 2023.
