Survey Aims 

This survey is aimed at both prospective and current members of the Council for Allied Health Professions Research (CAHPR) professoriate. It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

What is CAHPR?
CAHPR aims to develop allied health professions research, strengthen evidence of the profession’s value and impact for enhancing service user and community care and enable the professions to speak with one voice on research issues therefore raising their profile and increasing their influence. CAHPR has 3 strands : a Strategy Committee, a Hub Leaders forum which enables hub leaders from our 23 UK wide research hubs to come together for discussions twice a year and lastly we have a Professoriate.  The Professoriate consists of all the professors from across the Allied Health Professions who wish to become part of this important and influential group.  The professoriate meets on an annual basis.

The intended outcomes of CAHPR are to produce a strengthened profile and influence in local, national, European and International policy setting and implementation in health, social care and public health research.  Secondly we wish to increase research capacity from novice to expert levels sustained by stronger integrated structure for AHP research careers and continuing professional development. Thirdly we want to strengthen research collaborations across professions, sectors and settings that demonstrate the value and impact of AHP services for meeting population and provider needs.

CAHPR Professoriate
The professoriate enables Allied Health Profession Professors from across the UK to meet to share perspectives and expertise relating to the development of AHP research, to identify priorities/issues for CAHPR and to support CAHPR activity.

CAHPR Professoriate Aims

  • Provide a forum for discussion of strategic issues relating to AHP research and presentations from invited speakers supported by mechanisms for sharing and dissemination.
  • Provide a network for peer support for professorial colleagues including through virtual contact, networking and information sharing between meetings.
  • Contribute to the development of CAHPR through advising on priorities, opportunities and risks related to AHP research, including from the perspective of HEI’s across the UK and to contribute to a perspective on potential developments at European and International level.
  • Contribute to activities to support the strengthening of research collaborations, capacity building and development opportunities between academic and clinical service colleagues.
  • Engage in two way sharing of ideas with the CAHPR regional hub forum with a focus on research development, capacity and collaborations.
