“Health research is a key factor in promoting the health of the population, combating disease, reducing disability and improving the quality of care. It brings learning from international best practice and appropriate evaluation techniques and application. This evidence is essential to the creation of a fairer, more efficient health system and for the delivery of better health outcomes. In an environment that is dynamic and changing, health research in Ireland needs to be positioned to make its greatest contribution for patients, the health system and the economy”.
