Centre for Intellectual Disability Research (CIDR)
(Formerly CHSRID-Centre for Health Service Research in Intellectual Disabilities)
Our central aim is to conduct high quality, multi-disciplinary research to ensure that health service provision for people with intellectual disabilities actively contributes to their quality of life. We are all trained researchers and clinicians who combine their research activities with clinical work in the National Health Service. The CIDR team is made up of professionals from a range of disciplines, with psychiatry and clinical psychology at the core. To ensure our perspectives on health service provision and related issues remain as broad as possible we have forged close links with colleagues in the fields of epidemiology, health economics, anthropology, social psychology and voluntary sector organisations. We also work with professionals in a variety of disciplines, including speech & language therapy, nursing, social work and commissioning.
We have close links with service
user groups who either collaborate or consult to us on our research activity,
including the Elfrida Society, Camden Mencap and local groups of People First.
