CLAHRC BITEs

BITEs (Brokering Innovation Through Evidence) are short summaries, which aim to break down CLAHRC research into accessible, bite-sized pieces. These summaries highlight the main findings and impact of our research on practice, providing links and references for more in-depth information and further reading.

PenCLAHRC’s BITEs (which can be downloaded below) form part of a national library that spans the work of all 13 CLAHRCs. CLAHRC BITEs are also featured on the NICE Evidence website.
