NESSIE - NIHR Evidence Synthesis Scotland Initiative, is a collaboration between University of Edinburgh (Usher Institute), Glasgow Caledonian University, University of Newcastle upon Tyne and patient representatives and the faculties of Health Science and Sport, and Social Sciences at the University of Stirling. The project combines methodological, topic and patient and public involvement expertise. Over five years NESSIE will produce high quality evidence syntheses across a wide range of topics relevant to health care, public health and social care. These will have a direct impact on decision-making, patient and client care, reducing inequalities and identifying future research needs. More information about completed and ongoing evidence syntheses are available on the project website.
