Within the School of Nursing and Midwifery our area of strength is health innovation through co-design and rigorous evaluation of health promoting and healthcare interventions with policymakers, practice partners, patients and carers. Within the School we have two core (Maternal and Child Health; Chronic Illness and Palliative Care) and one emerging (Education and Practice) innovative research themes, which encapsulate lifespan health research from conception to end-of-life.
Chronic Illness and Palliative Care Research Theme
Improving the health and wellbeing of those affected by chronic illness, and enhancing end-of-life care.
- Our research is funded from the European Commission under Interreg and Horizon 2020, large charities such as Alzheimer’s Society, Dunhill Trust, Marie Curie, Movember Cancer Research United Kingdom, Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke as well as the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the Medical Research Council (MRC), the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Newton Fund, the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), and the Health and Social Care, Research and Development Division, Public Health Agency (PHA) of Northern Ireland.
- The success of our research depends on the meaningful and long-term partnerships we have developed with a range of key stakeholders, including practice and patient public involvement. In continuing to work with our key stakeholders at all stages of the research process we aim to ensure that the research conducted within the School is relevant and will lead to changes that improve healthcare outcomes for our society.
