NIHR Dissemination Centre - Right Evidence, Better Decisions

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Dissemination Centre aims to put good research evidence at the heart of decision making in health and social care.

The centre critically appraises the latest health research to identify the most reliable, relevant and significant findings. It then disseminates these findings as:

NIHR Signals - The latest important research, summarised

NIHR Highlights - Conditions, treatments and issues explored using NIHR evidence

Themed Reviews - Bringing together NIHR research on a particular theme

To keep up to date, sign up to their mailing list or follow @NIHR_DC on twitter.
