CYPHP is innovative in many ways, and one key element of this includes its clinical-academic partnership with King’s College London. As well as conducting a robust evaluation of the new clinical services, the evaluation team is proactively working alongside clinicians to accurately reflect and take into account how these services will be embedded in a real-world setting.
In addition, the close partnership between clinicians and researchers has enabled a unique and opportunistic randomised controlled trial to be designed. This gold standard approach will gather data in a way that meaningfully shows how effective the interventions are, as well as uniquely determining how the interventions can be implemented into practice, and the possible barriers to doing so.
The team is proud to announce that the protocols that describe the study design were recently published online. If you would like to find out more about how the team will measure the impact of our interventions on service use, patient quality of life, and cost effectiveness, please refer to the following articles:
