Research Collaborative in Quality and Patient Safety (RCQPS)

RCQPS, an initiative of the Health Research Board, the Health Services Executive, and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland are facilitating a funding call for projects that will bring together researchers with clinicians to answer questions of specific interest towards improving aspects of patient safety.

We have funding from HRB and HSE of approximately €1.1M and expect to fund up to four projects of 2 year duration over the next 2 years (Click here for PDF)

The RCQPS research team are continuing to compile our database of interested researchers, and with the RCQPS-Eligible Programme Leads, match researchers to clinicians that are best placed to answer our specific questions.

The closing date for consideration for this cycle of funding is the 28th of March, 2017.
