The CAHPR's mission is:
“to develop allied health profession research, strengthen evidence of the professions’ value and impact for enhancing service user and community care, and enable the professions to speak with one voice on research issues, thereby raising their profile and increasing their influence.”
The aim of the East Anglia Hub is to deliver regular events that help develop a local network of AHPs with an interest in research. We also aim to run a small annual bursary scheme to support AHPs develop and disseminate their research.
The East Anglia Hub is led by Dr Ruth Strudwick, a Diagnostic Radiographer, and supported by a committee including Dietitians, Music therapists, Occupational therapist, Paramedics, Physiotherapists, Radiographers and Speech and Language therapists. The committee are all actively involved with undertaking or promoting research.
We support the following AHP professions based in the East with audit and research:
- Arts Therapists
- Music Therapists
- Occupational Therapists
- Prosthetists and Orthotists
- Speech and Language Therapists
