NIHR CRN Ageing Specialty

The NIHR CRN Ageing Specialty is one of 30 specialties which bring together communities of clinical practice to provide national networks of research expertise. The membership is made up of research-interested clinicians and practitioners at both national and local levels.

The Ageing Specialty encourages new researchers and aims to generate interest in non-research active professionals so that there are more studies available for patients to participate in.

The aim of this survey is to establish how aware Ageing specialists are of the CRN Ageing Specialty and the support it offers them for research.
