Midwifery Research Collaboration Study

Start date: 1 Oct 2014 - End date: 31 Oct 2015 | Investigators - Andrew Symon, Jean Rankin

This study originated in the Scottish Government’s understanding of the need to safeguard and support midwifery research capacity in Scotland, and the importance of ensuring that maternity care is evidence informed. In a bid to provide and develop strategic midwifery research leadership and to contribute to informing practice through outputs that would support Research Excellence Framework (REF) submissions from Scottish universities, the Chief Nurse’s Office agreed to fund a research programme which addressed topics of importance to the Scottish Government.
