Barbara Ansell National Network for Adolescent Rheumatology (BANNAR)
The Barbara Ansell National Network for Adolescent and young adult Rheumatology (BANNAR) is a group of interested and committed professionals working together to develop and oversee a national research portfolio relevant to adolescent and young adult rheumatology.
The BANNAR website (www.bannar.org.uk) is a repository of information for clinical teams about the organisation and current research projects relevant to this age group.
BANNAR is very keen to engage with anybody interested in driving forward the research agenda supporting adolescent and young adult rheumatology. There are a number of opportunities for more junior reseachers to gain experience working with established teams across the country and BANNAR can help to facilitate funding. BANNAR is particularly keen to support trainees and allied health professionals.
If you are interested in adolescent research please contact Rachel Tattersall for further information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
BANNAR’s first project has been completed and the summary of good practice when involving young people in health-related research is available on the BANNAR website.
BANNAR had a call for membership in Spring 2013 which has resulted in a network of interested and committed professionals from both paediatric and adult rheumatology, to help guide research in the field of adolescent rheumatology.
BANNAR meets twice a year and membership remains open so please contact us if you would like more information.
If you have any questions or would like more
