A mixed-method research unit
IRIHS, founded in 2015, is a mixed-method research unit led jointly by Professor Trish Greenhalgh and Associate Professor Sara Shaw. We undertake interdisciplinary research, teaching and applied scholarship in fields relating to clinical practice, organisation and delivery of health services, health policy, translational science (covering the social and behavioural science of innovation and adoption), digital health and the patient experience.
Complexity Self-Assessment Tool for your project - designed to help you plan, undertake and evaluate a technology-supported change project in healthcare or social care. The tool has been developed to try to reduce the high proportion of technology projects that fail in these sectors.
Replication of the Oxford NASSS framework in the Netherlands
Technologies are often viewed as the route to better, safer and more efficient care, but technology projects rarely live up to all expectations. To timely identify the non-adoption, abandonment and challenges to scale-up, spread and sustainability of technology, the IRIHS team have developed the NASSS framework. In the next two years, they will collaborate with Dr. Judith Rietjens and Dr. Ida Korfage from the Department of Public Health of Erasmus MC, who have received 160,000 euro from The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development to replicate the NASSS framework for the Dutch context, and to develop a more practical version of the framework for use outside the academic setting.
