RCN Foundation launches call for Learning Disability nursing research

The RCN Foundation is calling for applicants to undertake a scoping project that will identify nursing led/nursing centred interventions that are in place to address the changing needs of the population living with learning disabilities. Interventions can be implemented by a multi-disciplinary team however there must be a nurse on the team. 

The scoping research will establish an evidence base for the development of our learning disability funding stream

Interventions should cover all ages and the research should also reflect activity across the four countries of the UK.

The scoping research should identify areas of good care delivery, any innovative practices, and possible gaps in the provision of care for individuals with learning disabilities.

The research will be undertaken over a period of six months.  For more information, including details on how to apply, please download the call for applications below.
