We work with researchers to advance the quality, range and design of clinical trials to improve the health of the population.
We are a UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered unit offering academic and scientific input to studies alongside operational support. We work closely with investigators to develop methodology for their study. We collaborate with internal and external researchers to develop and/or evaluate complex interventions in primary care, psychiatric and community settings.
We work to conduct high quality randomised trials and other studies with trial team associates. Our work supports a diverse portfolio of studies from ageing to infection, which leads us to collaborate with numerous funders. Successfully completed trials have included the development of a digital management programme for type-2 Diabetes, home-based health promotion interventions for vulnerable older people and a website improving contraception choices.
Our research themes cover a large range of topics across Primary Care settings:
|Dementia||Caring for the Elderly|
|Parkinson's Disease||Children's Health|
|Learning Disabilities||Palliative Care|
PRIMENT CTU is a partnership between 3 UCL departments:
- Research Department of Primary Care and Population Health
- Division of Psychiatry
- Department of Statistical Science
