This Directory is a list of research interested collaborators in the Mid West region. The members of this directory, predominantly from the UL Hospitals group and CHO Mid West region, are research interested professionals working in healthcare delivery across all disciplines. The purpose of this Directory is to create greater visibility of those interested in engaging in research projects and in turn facilitate opportunities for collaboration between HRI members and those actively working in hospital and community healthcare settings. Our goal through the development of this Directory is to encourage and support true interdisciplinary research which is meaningful for patients in the delivery of health services and the promotion of health and wellbeing locally, nationally and beyond.
