Our partnerships

We work collaboratively with many departments and research centres in the University, and in partnership with health and social care service providers and the independent and voluntary sectors. Dr Penny Curtis is Co-Director of The Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth and works with the Centre in exploring issues relevant to the health and wellbeing of children and families and disseminating evidence to providers of health and social care. Dr Elaine Whitton is leading a community-based project funded by NHS Yorkshire and the Humber to investigate the induction and preceptorship of newly appointed practice nurses.

Our international links include projects with colleagues in Sweden and Canada, working with older people, their families, practitioners and policy- makers to improve the quality of life for older people and their carers. We also have strong academic links with Norway, Hong Kong, Taiwan and New Zealand.

We work closely with ScHARR, and the Academic Unit of Palliative Medicine. Dr Tony Ryan is Principal Investigator on the National Institute for Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health and Care Research for South Yorkshire (SY-CLAHRC) Stroke Theme in collaboration with ScHARR.

Stroke is the largest single cause of disability and the third major cause of death in the UK.

The recent National Stroke Strategy has initiated significant

work in the development and improvement of acute and community-based services.

There is, however, considerable work to be done in developing the evidence base and assisting the translation of

empirical knowledge into practice. Dr Tony Ryan is Lead for the Stroke Theme of the South Yorkshire Collaborations for

Leadership in Applied Health and Care Research (SY-CLAHRC).

The theme, one of the largest within the SY-CLAHRC programme, will support

South Yorkshire's strategic commissioning of stroke services and the implementation of the National Stroke Strategy in order to reduce the incidence of stroke within

The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise ranked us among the top ten in the UK for research that is world leading.

South Yorkshire, improve the long-term provision and effectiveness of

rehabilitation within the community and

improve self management, independence, recreation and employment of people living with the effects of stroke.

Dr Ryan collaborates with a number of key academics from around the Faculty in the development of this work.
