An introduction to CAHPR

The mission of the Council for Allied Health Professions Research (CAHPR) is to develop AHP research, strengthen evidence of the professions’ value and impact for enhancing service user and community care.

It enables the professions to speak with one voice on research issues, thereby raising their profile and increasing their influence.

CAHPR aims to support the development of individuals interested in research and to promote the use of research evidence base in practice.

CAHPR focuses on Allied Health Professionals at all stages of their career, including students, practitioners, managers, consultants, new and experienced researchers.

CAHPR is supported by 13 AHP organisations and comprises a Strategy Committee, a Professoriate and a UK-wide regional Hub Network.

These hubs provide a range of support activities and research advice for AHPs within their own respective region, as well as linking with other relevant agencies and organisations.

The support for research may include advice on the following:
  • Getting started in research.
  • Grant and fellowship applications.
  • Enhancing research collaborations.
  • Writing for publication.
  • Disseminating research outcomes.
  • Mentorship and 1:1 support.
  • Funding and career development opportunities.
By providing excellent opportunities for networking and for collaborative clinically-based research, CAHPR will enhance research outputs across the Allied Health Professions and facilitate translation of research findings into education and practice.
