NMAHP Research Unit focuses its activity on two strong programmes of research that will impact on NMAHP practice and benefit patient and population health.
These two programmes of research enable the Unit to respond to and address a wide range of healthcare and clinical problems. The Interventions programme supports research that generates and evaluates potential solutions. The Quality & Delivery of Care programme focuses on identifying problems and variation in quality and delivery and understanding why they occur. It concerns understanding the behavioural (patient and practitioner) and organisational influences on care delivery and uptake of best practice. It also researches the implementation and translation of evidence-based solutions into practice, along with a further examination of models of delivery of care.
Although the Unit addresses many clinical areas much of our work is currently focused on stroke, mental health, maternal & child health, urogenital disorders, cancer, and pre-hospital emergency care.
