Four Research Clusters

Four Research Clusters

Our work focuses around three main clusters and a research interest group.

These key areas are supported by a group of academic staff and research students with a shared research interest around each of the key themes. The research clusters have strong alliances, both within the University and with external health care and academic agencies, which enhances the research support structures available to all members of the cluster. The purpose of the themes is to develop expertise in specific areas of nursing and midwifery education and research
