Research & Evidence team

We coordinate research activity and works across the RCPCH to ensure that outputs are evidence-based and their impact is appropriately evaluated. We develop guidelines, and support members and specialist groups with guideline development, and produce child protection evidence reviews.

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