Health Foundation – Behavioural Insights Research Programme
Details: The Behavioural Insights Research Programme aims to support research over a two to three year timeframe that designs, tests and evaluates behavioural interventions that can improve efficiency and reduce waste within health care services in the UK.
Researchers are invited to submit ideas rooted in ‘behavioural insights’ or ‘nudge theory’ across three key areas of interest:
  • Patient pathways, e.g. improving patient flow within the system, improving coordination and transfer of care, as well as expediting discharge.
  • Procurement, pharmacy and medicines optimisation, e.g. minimising cost and waste in procurement and prescribing, as well as improving medication adherence.
  • Care best practice, e.g. encouraging attendance, uptake of screening and health promotion by making every contact count; reducing unnecessary or ineffective care; better demand management and reducing harms. 
£1.8 million is available to support up to eight multidisciplinary research teams to generate new knowledge of what can motivate people to act in more efficient and less wasteful ways.  Each project will receive between £150,000 and £350,000 for research completed over two to three years.
Deadline for proposals: 12:00 on Friday 20 October 2017
