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. 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.
