Committed to translating research from the ‘bench to the bedside’, our nursing research addresses the full range of issues across this discipline such as professional working and patient care, the development of new treatments and interventions, and patient and carer experiences.
The latest topics being explored by our students include emotion work experiences of children nurses whilst caring for life-limiting conditions, and nursing students care towards obese patients.
