Is there an aspect of the care you provide to patients that could be improved through implementing evidence more effectively in practice?
If so, you may be interested in applying for funding to undertake a Getting Research into Practice (GRIP) project.
· Funding to support the implementation of research evidence into practice
· Patient care focused
· Sheffield Teaching Hospital focused
· Build capacity of existing staff to deliver evidence-based care
· The project should lead to a sustainable change in practice that does not require recurrent additional resources beyond the completion of the project.

· Projects expected to start in TBCGRiP projects will form part of the Translating Knowledge into Action theme of NIHR CLAHRC Yorkshire and Humber’s work to promote the uptake of evidence into practice. Funding from the Sheffield Hospitals Charity will enable CLAHRC YH to support up to three GRiP projects each year in Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (STH).
Successful projects will focus on innovative initiatives that seek to achieve a demonstrable improvement in patient outcomes, patient experience, and/or patient safety through implementing evidence into practice.
The ‘evidence’ to be implemented should be derived from research (for example published research findings or research based guidance or tools) but may also include local evidence from consultations with patients/patient groups and health care professionals or arising from audit.
The focus of GRIP projects is on implementing evidence into practice and not on service improvement, new roles or clinical audit for which other support is available within the Trust.
The types of project might be funded?
A maximum of £12,000 is available to support each project. Funding can be used to release staff to undertake the project and to provide the necessary resources needed to take the work forward.
Funding cannot not be used to support conference attendance, as other sources of funding are available within the Trust for this purpose.
Examples of previously funded projects:
