The Practice Development and Research Partnership

The Practice Development and Research Partnership Unit (PDRP) have been developed in conjunction with the University of Chester. It consists of an individual or team of staff members, within a ward or department, who are committed to the vision of the PDRP and are actively pursuing and achieving the objectives and outcomes set within it.

The aim of the PDRP is to strive for excellence through continual improvement of patient care and professional practice, via research and practice development projects. The PDRP benefits the Trust by facilitating the generation and sharing of knowledge, skills and experience amongst staff.

The Trust and University board have approved the PDRP, with progress and evaluation monitored and achieved through a steering group and management committee.
