Council for Allied Health Professions Research

The Council for Allied Health Professions Research (CAHPR) welcomes students, new and experienced researchers, clinicians, managers, consultants and academics from all of the Allied Health Professions and those interested in, or undertaking, research relevant to the Allied Health Professions.

The overall aim of the network is to support the development of individuals interested in research and to promote the use of the evolving evidence base in practice.

Further details about CAHPR are contained within the CAHPR Strategic Plan and the CAHPR Constitution and Terms of reference.

The network has 23 regional 'Hubs'. These provide bespoke research advice and support which includes:
  • Getting started in research
  • Grant and fellowship applications
  • Enhancing research collaborations
  • Writing for publication
  • Disseminating research outcomes
  • Mentorship and 1:1 support
  • Funding and career development opportunities
By providing excellent opportunities for networking and for collaborative clinically-based research, CAHPR will enhance research outputs across the Allied Health Professions and facilitate translation of research fundings into education and practice.

CAHPR is directed by Professor Ann Moore alongside the Core Executive committee, chaired by Dr Liz White.
