Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals Research Unit

The Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions Research Unit (NMAHP RU) is funded by the Scottish Government's Health Directorates, Chief Scientist Office. It has academic bases within the University of Stirling and Glasgow Caledonian University.

NMAHP RU focuses its activity on strong programmes of research that will impact on NMAHP Practice and benefit patient and population health. Following the Unit’s recent successful Scientific Review, its activity has been consolidated into two new programmes: Interventions and Quality and Delivery of Care.

Following the Unit’s successful review it has commenced a new research strategy to build upon the challenges of delivering healthcare in the 21st century.

The Unit has capitalised on synergies between its previous programmes (Decision Making, Stroke, Urogenital and Mental Health), to respond to patient priorities which address both physical and mental health needs. The Unit’s new research agenda arranges its research and translational activities across two key programmes with senior staff leading cognate areas of activity within and across the programmes.

The Unit’s new research programmes

  • NMAHP Interventions
  • Quality and Delivery of Care

These programmes encompass an existing body of work in the cross cutting themes of maternal care, urogenital disorders, mental health and stroke. These programmes will also continue to reflect the remit of the Unit in terms of its relevance to direct patient care.
