HRB Definitive Interventions and Feasibility Awards (2017)

The overarching aim of the DIFA scheme is to achieve tangible benefits to patients, peoples’ health and health services through support of studies aimed at evaluating a full scale, definitive intervention of any appropriate design to provide high quality evidence on the efficacy, effectiveness, cost and broad impact of the intervention. 

Aligned with the objectives set out in the HRB Strategy, this scheme will support researchers and research teams to conduct high quality definitive intervention trials and feasibility studies in clinical and/or population health research and/or health services research that are relevant to health priorities internationally and or nationally, translates research discoveries and knowledge into new ways of treating patients, delivering care or changing behaviour to ultimately improve health outcomes and health service delivery. It will also support the conduct of trial methodology research within the context of proposed interventions.
