Innovative and Essential Care Research Group

Uniting expertise to improve services

The Innovative and Essential Care (IEC) Research Group brings together world class researchers whose work spans the development, evaluation and implementation of high quality care interventions and innovative health services.

Our work comprises three main strands:

Reviewing continence products

We've developed a website containing all our research findings on continence products and devices to help people with incontinence issues find what they need more easily than before.

Advocating non medical prescribing

Our research findings were pivotal in persuading the Government to reform prescribing legislation; empowering healthcare professionals to prescribe medicines independently.

Informing policy on staffing

IEC studies into health workforce configuration have demonstrated the link between numbers and quality of care; informing policy at home and abroad.
