CLAHRC Partnership: report from the Child Health Meeting November 2016

A report has been produced which summarises the key findings of the November 2016 CLAHRC Child Health meeting, where researchers, clinicians, students and other colleagues from 11 CLAHRCs gathered in London to discuss challenges and opportunities in the field of Child and Adolescent Health Research.

Professor Stuart Logan, Director of PenCLAHRC, opened the day by highlighting the importance of child health in a changing research landscape. He celebrated the event as a great opportunity to share knowledge and expertise, meet new people, and plan future collaborations.

Each CLAHRC presented their research in the area of child health, noting key outcomes and impacts where applicable, and highlighting potential opportunities for collaborative working. A diverse range of research was presented which included projects on: allergies; gestational diabetes; transition; parenting; optimal nutrition, healthy behaviours and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Parallel interactive sessions were then held to identify potential opportunities for cross-CLAHRC collaborations, within special interest groups. These were facilitated by researchers in the field. After the event a CLAHRC community newsletter was produced, this can be found here.
