The Evaluation, Research and Development addresses themes relevant to the delivery of safe, clinically effective care. ERDU works closely with commissioners, health care providers and practitioners in identifying and addressing applied health research questions, supporting the translation of research findings into practice and evaluating the effectiveness of changes in service delivery. We have particular expertise in research on the diagnosis of cancer. ERDU is part of both FUSE: The Centre for Translational Research and Public Health, and the DH-funded Policy Research Unit for Cancer Awareness, Screening and Early Diagnosis.
ERDU is a multidisciplinary group headed by Professor Greg Rubin. It has expertise in a wide range of research and evaluative methods in health care and its staff have backgrounds in social sciences, primary health care and public health. We welcome enquiries from health care organisations engaged in the commissioning or delivery of health care, either in the UK or overseas. You can contact the Evaluation, Research and Development Unit through its secretary, Susan Williams.
