DIFA (Definitive Interventions & Feasibility Awards)
The overarching aim of the Definitive Interventions and Feasibility Awards (DIFA) scheme is to deliver tangible benefits to patients, people’s health and health services. The scheme supports evaluations of full-scale, definitive interventions of any appropriate design. In order to achieve a pipeline of such studies, the scheme supports feasibility studies conducted in preparation for a future definitive intervention. Costs for studies on methodology research (SWATs) within a trial are also eligible for reimbursement.
