New Funding Partnership with Pharmacy Research UK

The Research Awards will support projects in translational and health service research related to oncology and haematology pharmacy with a focus on patient benefit and provide a platform for novice researchers to engage in research. Through these awards PRUK and BOPA aim to build the capacity for research within oncology and haematology pharmacy, provide evidence to inform healthcare policy and to highlight the vital role of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in the wider healthcare community.

Dr Rachel Joynes, Head of Research and Evaluation at Pharmacy Research UK said ‘We are delighted to be announcing this new partnership with BOPA which we hope will not only allow both pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to undertake research but also presents an opportunity for those new to research to lead their first project’.

Carl Booth, Chair of the BOPA Audit and Research Sub-Committee notes ‘BOPA is incredibly excited to be funding our first research projects to build the base of evidence in oncology and haematology pharmacy. We hope this funding will allow our members to explore previously unanswered questions and will support the development of new skills and future opportunities’.

Successful applicants will be invited to present their work at the BOPA annual symposium in 2017.
