Research programmes

Staff in the Centre for Nursing and Allied Health Research are actively engaged on research projects within the main programmes listed below, using a variety of methodological approaches (qualitative and quantitative), and involving multidisciplinary collaborations. 

Our research programmes are grouped into eight themes centred on patient and family experience and evidence-based outcomes:

  • communicating complex information to children and families and influencing informed decision-making

  • use of evidence to influence and optimise clinical care

  • interventions to improve patient and family experience of care, including transition to adult services

  • outcomes of symptom management

  • staff, family and patient perception of risk and satisfaction with care

  • development, validation and application of outcome measures

  • methodologies for strengthening the collective voice of children and young people

  • understanding effects of conditions, illness and treatment on daily lives
