Health Research in Action

This year’s Health Research in Action highlights some of the many notable impacts and outcomes of the Health Research Board’s work. It includes a snapshot in numbers of our activity during 2022, followed by 29 success stories from our wide-ranging health and social care research portfolio.

The stories include HRB-funded projects about examining healthcare complaints in a systematic way to improve services, advancing care for critically ill patients, preventing falls and enhancing mobility in older people, and delivering specialist care to patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Research conducted directly by HRB staff made many important contributions to national conversations around varied aspects of health policy, especially in the area of drugs and alcohol, including the Citizens’ Assembly on Drug Use.
