As 2018 comes to a close, we’re reflecting on five of our most downloaded reports this year.
Addressing the global challenge of multimorbidity (2018) – In April this year, we published our first ever international policy report, looking at the global issues around people managing multiple conditions. We’ve since published a follow-up report, which you can also find on our project page.
Improving the health of the public by 2040 (2016) Two years ago, the Academy explored how the UK’s research environment needs to adapt to meet the health challenges the population will face by 2040. One of our key recommendations was the formation of SCHOPR, which was announced earlier this year – find out more in our news story about the launch.
How can we all best use evidence? (2017) Last year, we launched our largest ever policy project, examining how to best use evidence to judge the potential benefits and harms of medicines. In the current climate, this report is more relevant than ever – you can find a quick introduction by watching our short animations illustrating the key findings.
Our data driven future in healthcare: People and partnerships at the heart of health related technologies (2018) Our most recent policy report, and one of our most innovative – throughout 2018, we’ve developed principles to guide the future use of data-driven technologies in healthcare, based on workshops with patients, the public and healthcare professionals. You can hear a discussion of the report on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme on iPlayer.
Reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research (2015) Three years on, this report is still extremely popular, following a symposium to explore the challenges and opportunities for improving the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research in the UK. Professor Marcus Munafo recently wrote a blog for us on best practice for researchers, which you can read in our news section.
