The Research to Reality (R2R) programme (November 2009 - January 2011) comprised a series of eight facilitated multi-agency workshops focused on priority National Indicators for the North East. The programme was a collaboration between the Regional Improvement and Efficiency Partnership (RIEP), the Association of North East Councils (ANEC), Fuse (the Centre for Translational Research in Public Health), and the NE Strategic Health Authority (SHA). The initiative was made possible by the convergence of several factors, including: an examination of comparative data on LAA targets within the NE region; the desire to explore in more depth the nature of complex cross-cutting health, social, and economic well-being issues; a wish to raise awareness of effective interventions that might address these; the availability of funding; and newly formed partnership arrangements across local government, health and academia enabling a collaborative approach.
