The primary care researchers at the core of the HRB Primary Care CTNI are undertaking leading edge research, collaborating with GPs, practice nurses and other primary care healthcare professionals all over Ireland. Focussed on research, training and knowledge exchange, the Network aims to build links with other national and international primary care researchers, other research networks of relevance to primary care, health policy decision-makers, patient organisations and industry partners conducting healthcare research.

Established in 2015, we are engaged in a number of different types of studies:

  • Network-funded studies: two trials and a pilot study funded through the initial HRB Clinical Trials Networks grant – read Current research for details
  • Network-supported studies: a number of studies led by academics from Ireland and overseas. These study teams include or are supported by some of the Network academics and the studies are recruiting patients through primary care settings – read Current research for details
  • Externally funded studies: multi-site international trials and trials-related research, with sponsors either from academia or from the life sciences industry
