CADA Implementation Science Summer School, July 2023

Workshop attendees watch a presentation

Whether in-person or online participants are enjoying the CADA Implementation Science Summer School.

From 17 – 21 July, the Centre is hosting a CADA Implementation Science Summer School in York. The Summer School has been funded by the NIHR Global Health Research Cohort Academic Development Award (GHR CADA).

Day 1: CADA Implementation Science Summer School – Prof Kamran Siddiqi presenting to virtual and in-person attendees.

Wider local teams in South Asia (SA) are attending online/hybrid sessions and the Early/Mid Career Researchers (EMCRs) attending in person will also relay the training to their local teams, further expanding the impact and establishing a network of EMCRs working in SA implementation science.

Day 2 included an important focus on health economics as well as time spent working in groups responding to a ‘mock’ funding call.

On Day 3 we were delighted to welcome Jun Xia, Co-Director of Nottingham Ningbo GRADE Centre and Systematic Review and Clinical Practice Guideline Lead, to provide training on guideline development including a focus on meta-analysis.

To maximise networking opportunities, this summer school overlaps with the:

  • TIIDE Dissemination Event – 24 & 25 July – NIHR DiaDeM and IMPACT South Asia Group, and UKRI/NIHR IMPASS and UKRI TB Multimorbidity programmes
  • Centre for Impact Annual Meeting – 26, 27 & 28 July


Both events take place next week at the University of York’s Ron Cooke Hub.

We thank all our presenters for supporting the delivery of this great training opportunity.

Looking forward to the blog writing session from the Mental Elf tomorrow.

Award background

The NIHR Global Health Research Cohort Academic Development Awards (GHR CADA) application was led by DiaDeM‘s Prof Richard Holt and Dr Faiza Aslam, in collaboration with the training leads of the Centre for IMPACT (Prof. Sameen Siddiqi) and the CONTROL programme (Prof. Saeed Farooq). It proposed an interactive training programme  “Implementation Science Summer School: Addressing Mental and Physical Health Together”.

The NIHR Academy is responsible for the development and coordination of NIHR academic training, career development and research capacity development. It plays an important role in strengthening capacity in global health research, providing opportunities and funding initiatives to develop and advance global health research career pathways and supporting the next generation of future leaders.

The NIHR GHR Cohort Academic Development Award (GHR CADA) scheme offers NIHR GHR Programme Training Leads (or Directors/Principle investigators (PIs) where there is no training lead in place) an opportunity to tailor a programme of activities to meet the academic training and career development needs of the cohort of NIHR GHR Academy members in their NIHR GHR Programme awards (primarily focussed on those who are LMIC based) and, where training needs align, with other NIHR GHR Programme awards. Individuals can apply to the GHR CADA scheme for funding to undertake a programme of activities. Applications are light-touch and will be assessed in an open competition.
