Help needed - The IRIS Project: Improving Rehabilitation for people with Impaired Sight

05 Sep 2016 09:09 | Simon Labbett (Administrator)

The Social Policy Research Unit at the University of York are carrying out a study of Vision Rehabilitation Services (IRIS project), funded by the National Institute of Health Research - School for Social Care Research. The research aims to examine the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of vision rehabilitation services funded by local authorities in England. We have Ethical and ADASS approval to conduct the research.

Recruitment has been going really well. Eighteen services are already taking part in this research and we would like to have another two services involved. If you provide a vision rehabilitation service that is funded by local authority and are interested to take part in this research, we would like to hear from you now.

Please contact Parvaneh Rabiee or Ann Hopton at the University of York.
