The School is one of the UK’s premier research schools. We work with our partners to provide high quality clinically-relevant research in the UK and internationally. We conduct world-leading research to improve health and to inform in nursing, midwifery and other health professional practice and will continue to exchange our knowledge and skills with partners.
Central to our strategy is our ability to improve the health/illness experience of individuals and communities, including those in rural and remote areas. This is done through our impact in research, education, practice and policy at a national and international level. Our research builds the capacity and capability of nursing, midwifery and allied health professional researchers.
Staff have expertise in a wide range of research methods including action research, complex interventions, mixed methods and RCTs. Researchers also have active international collaborative links with academics in other disciplines. Applied research and multidisciplinary research are encouraged, and there is a commitment to theoretical and methodological advances.
