Our Research Priorities
Nursing Studies at the University of Edinburgh engages in innovative social science research which aims to improve patient and family experiences, develop practice and enhance nurse education through both empirical and conceptual research. Drawing on a diverse range of methodologies and theoretical approaches, our interdisciplinary research impacts on policy, health and social care delivery and interventions. The purpose is to optimise the health potential of individuals and populations in local and global contexts and make a difference in people’s lives.
