Example contract research case studies
2013: Cosmetic piercing – developing the evidence base. Research design project for Welsh Government - to support policy development and Ministerial statements on legislation relating to the health impacts of cosmetic piercing, Welsh Government identified that research might be needed to investigate the prevalence of cosmetic piercing in Wales and the associated health risks. This research report evaluated potential approaches for investigating these issues, and proposed a phased research design (cross-sectional study followed by case-control study) accompanied by indicative budget figures.
2017: Independent review of smoking cessation services in Wales - Working with Emma George Consulting, undertook rapid review of the future delivery of smoking cessation services in Wales. This involved a review of published systematic reviews relating to effective smoking cessation interventions and services, and qualitative interviews with key stakeholders, leading to production of recommendations and potential options for the future provision of smoking cessation services in Wales. Interim findings have been presented to Welsh Government’s Tobacco Control Strategic Board, and we expect the final research report to be published by Welsh Government in early 2018.
