Health

In health, we have been transforming and influencing practice in areas such as management of pain and community mental health.  The REF 2014 results confirmed that 100% of our research has outstanding or very considerable impact on practice in terms of reach and significance.

The impact of our mental health research has challenged prevailing beliefs and practices and led directly to changes in service delivery and design across the world. Our approach to investigating the treatment of pain combines an understanding of the factors that influence pain with the physical and psychological techniques that can be used to improve experience of pain, leading to significant improvements in patient outcomes and patient satisfaction.
