Course summary

Our Research aim is 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.

Research Opportunities

We have a vibrant community of post graduate research students and we are committed to advancing scholarship through teaching and research. There are opportunities to study for Research Master's and Professional Doctorates in topics related to our two main themes.

Person, Family and Community Focused Health and Wellbeing & Organisation
Delivery of Health & Social Care/Services

Aligned to these core themes, we have two research groups that lead research activities. These are:

Long-Term Conditions, Palliative and End of Life Care and Bereavement
Maternal, Child and Family Health

OUR RESEARCH GROUPS

The aim of the research groups is to undertake applied health research which impacts upon policy, education and practice and fits with RGU’s mission to ‘transform people and communities.’ 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.

Research undertaken by the groups will align with a range of theoretical frameworks and models relating to the development and evaluation of complex interventions and implementation in practice. A range of methodologies including mixed methods, systematic literature reviews, scoping and mapping studies, quantitative and qualitative research, and feasibility and pilot studies moving towards large scale RCTs, if and where appropriate.

The School Research Committee is convened by Professor Catriona Kennedy. The purpose of the research committee is to guide the development and conduct of research in the School and the research groups will report through the committee.
