CaHRU has three programmes of research, each with an academic lead working with CaHRU’s director Prof Niro Siriwardena to further the strategic development of the group and to mentor and support junior and early career researchers:
- Quality and Outcomes in Primary Healthcare (QOPH) Lead: Dr Jo Middlemass
- Prehospital Emergency Quality and Outcomes (PEQO) Lead: Dr Zahid Asghar
- Enhancing Experience and Equity in healthCare (EPiC) Lead: Dr Coral Sirdifield
Underpinning these three programmes are the three cross-cutting themes of Quality Improvement, Healthier Aging and Ethical Healthcare.
