For the fifth year the Council for Allied Health Professions Research is inviting applications for the Public Health Research Awards, which are aimed at novice or early career researchers.

The awards recognise AHPs’ contribution to high quality research that supports one or more of Public Health England’s priorities and systematic reviews will be accepted as a methodology for the first time.

The PHE priorities include:

  • Tackling obesity, particularly among children
  • Reducing smoking and stopping children starting
  • Reducing harmful drinking and alcohol related admissions
  • Ensuring every child has the best start in life
  • Reducing the risk of dementia
  • Tackling the growth in antimicrobial resistance
  • Promoting workplace wellbeing
  • Increasing physical activity
  • AHP interventions showing an impact on population health outcomes and/or wider determinants of health

Three prizes will be awarded. Winners each receive:

  • The opportunity to display your research at the Public Health England conference in September.
  • £500 towards associated expenses: travel, registration costs, poster design.

The deadline for entries is 29 April 2019.

Information and guidance on how to enter is on the CAHPR website.

CAHPR hubs can offer advice and support to submit your application.
