Cedar has a team of researchers led by Kathleen Withers dedicated to the National Value in Health (ViH) Programme. Value in Health is a national programme of work striving towards achieving a Value-Based Health Care approach across NHS Wales in support of Prudent Healthcare principles.
Cedar is supporting the Welsh Value in Health Centre by providing analytical and evaluation capacity, advising on PROMs selection, use and administration, and supporting the production of outputs and reports for presentations, conferences and publications. Our role requires us to collaborate with a broad range of stakeholders including patients, clinicians, and Health Board and Welsh Government representatives for both local and national projects. Core activities undertaken by Cedar to support the Welsh Value in Health Centre include:
In addition to the core activities, Cedar also provides a number of other services such as bespoke analysis, research, evaluation & implementation on behalf of Value in Health such as research facilitation, grant proposals, trials management, and dissemination.
