NIHR PRP Research call to evaluate the use of the ICON programme in its purpose to prevent instances of Abusive Head Trauma (AHT) in infants

  Tuesday, 08 Sep 2020 | Funding Deadline

The NIHR Policy Research Programme (PRP) funds policy research to enable evidence informed policy making in health and social care.

Proposals are invited for a single research project to design and deliver an evaluation of the ICON programme in England. ICON is a programme designed to prevent infant head trauma by helping parents and carers cope with a crying baby.

Both an impact and process evaluation is envisaged. We are requesting a two-phase project, with a breakpoint after Phase 1. The first Phase is to design a robust plan for the evaluation of the ICON programme in England, including highlighting any limitations. Phase 2 would be carrying out the evaluation itself.

Please be advised that this is a Single Stage (full) Application Process.

The online application form will be available from 04 August 2020.


Deadline for proposals: 1pm on 8th September 2020
