Research and Evaluation team

The Research and Evaluation team coordinates research and evaluation activity and works across the RCPCH to ensure that outputs are evidence based and their impact is appropriately evaluated. 

We work internally and externally to promote child health research, influence key bodies to fund and carry out more high quality child health research, as well as supporting staff, our membership and wider child health professionals to design, deliver and disseminate research.  We want to increase paediatric research capacity and ensuring that all those involved in paediatric research have the skills and knowledge to actively involve children and young people in research.
