The Core Study


CORE Resource Pack

This website provides information and online resources to help teams taking part in the CORE study achieve our shared aim of improving the effectiveness of CRT services.  We hope CRT managers and staff will explore the resource pack and use those areas most relevant to their team's service improvement priorities. 

The CRT Service Improvement Programme evaluated in the CORE study was completed in December 2015. Details of CRT teams, policy and best available evidence included in this website have not been updated since then.

Results from the CORE study Service Improvement Programme trial are expected in early 2018 and will be made available on the study website
