Many funding bodies use research priorities to strategically target resources towards areas that most urgently require evidence and that are compatible with their research goals. It is recommended practice that applicants consider a funding body's priorities when they are applying for research funding.
From 2011, the MACP plans to actively encourage that applicants for MACP awards and bursaries consider published research priorities (see below) as part of their justification for undertaking and seeking funding for a particular research project.
Examples of research priorities;
In 2010 the CSP completed a research priorities project and 24 topics were identified in the musculoskeletal field. See the following web page for information;
Arthritis Research UK funds research studies in the area of arthritis and related musculoskeletal conditions, aiming to address 10 key goals.
The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) commissions and funds research focusing on improving outcomes in health and social care. One stream of funding of particular relevance to physiotherapists is the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) External Devices and Physical Therapies Panel
Post-qualification level research projects & theses
Dr. Alison Rushton & Prof Ann Moore have developed and published a list of research priorities for post-qualification level research theses based on international research priorities.
