Research Nursing Forum

The RCN produces a weekly R&D bulletin

Nurses and midwives at NUH are in an ideal position to contribute to and conduct high quality research. In doing this they can continue to contribute to the generation of knowledge that benefits patients.

NUH Trust has established the Nursing and Midwifery Research Strategy Group. The Group’s strategy and objectives outline in greater detail the commitment by NUH to:

- increase the number of nurses and midwives involved in research;

- achieve a greater proportion of nurses and midwives who are capable of working at the highest level of research practice.

If you are a nurse or midwife interested in research and scholarly activities, such as publishing, then please contact , Group Chair. The Group welcomes new members but would also like to hear of any innovative work being undertaken by nurses or midwives within NUH Trust.

You can keep up to date with RCN R&D developments by signing up for their weekly bulletin. An archive is also available for previous bulletins.
