Pharmacy Research UK (PRUK) and the British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) have announced a new funding partnership for 2016 to allow pharmacists in oncology and haematology pharmacy to undertake research.
The BOPA-PRUK Research Awards will support projects in translational and health service research related to oncology and haematology pharmacy 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.
Successful applicants will be invited to present their work at the BOPA annual symposium in 2017. Applications for awards of up to £5,000 over 12 months will be considered from pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
The scheme will open for application on February 1, 2016, with further information available on the PRUK website.
