TORR is a mixed methods study that aims to understand how peer reviewers use and combine the information in grant applications to make their recommendations. A key objective is to contribute to the development of evidence-based training to support peer-reviewers' work.

Research being carried out under this theme aims to generate tools that can be used by health and social care stakeholders to plan and evaluate implementation of complex health and social care programmes and interventions.

There are currently two research projects being undertaken under this theme. The first is a mixed-methods study to identify existing approaches to PPI in health and social care commissioning; and the second, a study of the role of PPI leads in research.
Taken together, these projects aim to deepen understanding of various aspects of PPI such as the embedding of PPI national standards in research context, the impacts of PPI, and the barriers and facilitators to PPI engagement of underserved groups.
Learning from both projects will help strengthen PPI practice in all aspects of health and social care and in collaborative research environments.

The theme's core project focuses on research capability for non-researchers and is carried out in partnership with ARC colleagues, the AHSN (Health Innovation Network) and Health Education England.
Under the theme, an online module in implementation science will be developed as a partnership between ARC South London Academic Partners (King's College London, Kingston University and St George's, University of London) and the University of East Anglia.
It is expected that this will provide a valuable resource to inform implementation of applied research and is intended for local, national and international delivery.
More about the project: Our core ARC team
This research theme is dedicated to designing and testing new and better ways of improving care and health outcomes for two groups of often overlooked children, namely: children with disabilities and/or more than one long-term condition; and children who experience adverse conditions that make them less likely to develop optimally by the time they start school.
