The Centre for Health and Social Care Research
Canterbury Christ Church is a leading light in health and social care higher education and research in the South East.
Our Centre for Health and Social Care Research (CHSCR) brings together a range of academics in applied, practice-focused and policy research.
It has built a strong reputation for collaborative health and social care research, particularly in Kent and Medway, and its work is increasingly recognised at a national level for the impact it is making on the region.
Academic staff predominantly work with NHS and social care commissioning and provider organisations as well as voluntary and community groups and industries in Kent, Medway and South East London.
The Centre's research and knowledge exchange activities fall within three broad thematic programmes: Organisation and Delivery of Health and Social Care, Public Health and Mental Health.
The Dementia Services Development Centre South East is also part of the CHSCR.
Notable research projects to date, which have led to positive changes in health and social care practice, include:
Road to Health and Wellbeing - Gypsy/Traveller Health Project
Evaluation of Paramedic Practitioner Placements in General Practice
Place, Risk and Coronary Heart Disease (CHD)
