Staff within the School of Nursing and Midwifery aim to engage with key partners to develop, deliver and disseminate high-quality research that is of value to society, those using health and social care services, and the professions of nursing and midwifery. The School's two main research themes are:
Person, family and community focused health and wellbeing & organisation; and
Delivery of health & social care/services.

Aligned to these core themes, research activities are lead by two research groups:
Long-term conditions, palliative and end of life care and bereavement; and
Maternal, child and family health.

The aim of the research groups is to undertake applied health research which impacts upon policy, education and practice. Each group is organised around a portfolio of internationally-recognised research with a transdisciplinary focus conducted in collaboration and partnership with multiple stakeholders: women and men; families and carers; members of the public and our communities; academic, clinical and voluntary sector partners; policy makers; funders and, community and health service leaders.
