Three Projects Receive Research Development Funding from the BHF CRC

The BHF CRC is pleased to announce that a further 3 grants have been awarded to fund projects that contribute to the development of clinical research, in turn leading to further research activity. The most recent projects include:

  • Development of the National Echocardiographic Database of the United Kingdom (NED-UK). This will provide significant insight into the prognostic value of echocardiography and into disease progression in a diverse population whilst providing scope for multi-disciplinary collaboration. (Endorsed by the British Society of Echocardiography)
  • Evaluating Screening in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. This will synthesise the evidence base for HCM screening and improve the understanding of targeted screening in those with and without a genetic risk. (Endorsed by the Association for Inherited Cardiac Conditions)
  • Diagnostic and treatment delays in heart failure; multidimensional correlates and stakeholder consensus. This will determine the patient, clinician, and system-level factors associated with symptom reporting and provide time to and place of diagnosis. It will additionally develop consensus on the patient, clinical, and health service intervention priorities and optimise timely diagnosis and management within HF. (Endorsed by the British Society of Heart Failure)
