LHP SPARK team share results of collaborative work with national research colleagues

The team from LHP’s Single Point of Access to Research and Knowledge (SPARK) were proud to present two posters at RDF23 in Newcastle.

The event at Sage Gateshead runs from 21st -23rd May, with the NHS Research and Development Forum running it in conjunction with the Health Research Authority.

It is expected to attract more than 800 people from across the country, encouraging collaboration, new ideas and a strengthening of the research community.

The SPARK team presented two posters demonstrating the impact of their work in research in the Liverpool City Region among their partners in the NHS and higher education.

The posters provided information on the development and outputs of LHP SPARK and the development of a Live Power BI Dashboard for tracking study set-up.

They sparked a lot of interest among delegates who were keen to learn more about the impact of SPARK on clinical trial set up, costings and grant applications and in particular the development of SPARK systems, databases and Power BI Dashboards.

Dr Seema Chauhan, Head of LHP SPARK, said: “We are very proud of the collaborative work of all our partners over the last year, and beyond.

“RDF23 has been the perfect opportunity for us to demonstrate the benefits of a collaborative approach to research, at every point of the set-up process.”
