Following on from the CHD Priority Setting Partnership , a national strategy to address the priorities for research in children and adults with congenital heart disease (CHD) has been introduced. The strategy was launched on the 31sy July.
The strategy outlines the structures through which the research can be translated into questions and funded studies. These structures will be developed over the coming months, including: the Congenital Heart Research Network, a UK & Ireland collaborative network for multi-centre studies, with a focus on clinical trials that can impact on clinical care; and a national CHD Patient and Public Involvement group, so that patients, families and charities can continue to be actively involved in driving the research agenda.
