Nursing and Health Care Research
Part of the vision of the Nursing & Health Care School is to be an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research. Research within the school is undertaken with the aim of positively influencing the quality of health care locally, nationally and internationally.
Although the School is relatively small we have strong links with other Schools within the School of Medicine and also the University of Glasgow research institutes. In particular we have been working to develop collaborations with the Institute for Health and Wellbeing.
The School is building on the success of the previous RAE (2008) which involved a joint submission with Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of Strathclyde. This involves increasing the critical mass of staff actively involved in research, increasing collaborative working with colleagues both within the UK and overseas and ensuring research is firmly embedded and applied within the teaching strategies of the taught programmes offered within the School.
• To develop the three research themes within the School
• To develop a supportive infrastructure and leadership structure within the themes
• To improve collaborative working both within the University of Glasgow and other national and international colleagues
• To enhance the quality of research outputs
• To increase the amount of grant funding
• To increase the number of PhD students and post-doctoral researchers
The research of the School is focussed around three themes. The work programmes within each of the themes are not independent of each other and integration between themes is evident
