Research within the School of Nursing and Midwifery

The School of Nursing and Midwifery is committed to evidenced based teaching and practice, and has a developing portfolio of active researchers and supervisors. We have academics from a range of nursing and midwifery backgrounds who are able to support Masters, MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate students in a variety of research topics using a range of research methodologies. We usually work in small supervisory teams across the University, to ensure that students receive the best possible supervision at all times.

Research in the School is led by Professor Sue Read, and we are affiliated to the Research Institute of Primary and Health Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences for the administration of our postgraduate students. Research is organised and managed through our School Research Committee.

Research across the School is focused around four specific research groups, and all staff are expected to have membership of one main group and a secondary group where appropriate.
