Excellence in Health Research

This funding supports a research collaboration between CHSS and Kent Community NHS Trust Weight Management Service, in order to co-develop a research bid to NIHR around mindfulness and weight management/maintenance. The collaboration will also facilitate the development of future studies and research proposals.

Weight management team staff will provide input towards the design of the intervention and the evaluation framework. Funding for Dr Sarah Hotham's time at CHSS for one day a week during Feb-March 2016 will enable her to lead on the deliverable, the written research proposal detailing the co-developed intervention, how impact and processes will be evaluated, and next steps.

Start date: 01/02/2016 End date: 31/05/2016
