Impact 2006 - 2016
The School celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2016 and has since collected and analysed metrics surrounding the impact of commissioned research over the decade. A review of impact was conducted to demonstrate to our stakeholders that research is achieving the aims and objectives set out in our business plan. This page outlines the review and provides links to more in-depth analyses.
What are our aims?
- to increase the evidence base for primary care practice
- to build research capacity in primary care
- to create a 'critical mass' of research expertise through collaboration
- to improve awareness in primary care
What we did
We measured impact with:
Number of journal articles
Number of article citations
Number of policy citations
Qualitative assessment of School research portfolio
Thematic Case Studies
Qualitative review of research by School research themes
Our future work
There are a number of potential impact metrics that will require further research, such as economic impact and the impact of public involvement, trainee research projects (which started with the first cohort in 2010) and trainee career trajectory. Such metrics would require further and more time intensive work, and are likely to be recommended as a second phase of this impact report.
