Course content

The Maternal, Child and Public Health research group was established in 2004 to undertake research to examine and explain differences in health and quality of life during pregnancy and the early stages of life, through childhood to adulthood.

The research programme aims to enhance the health and quality of life of children, young people, pregnant women and adults, including those with acute and lifelong conditions, by understanding and improving healthcare provision.

There are established collaborations with other academic departments within The University of Nottingham (Primary Care, Child Health, Psychiatry, Pharmacy, Learning Sciences Research Institute, Biosciences, Sociology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology), within other UK academic institutions (Universities of Leicester and Lincoln; Institute of Child Health; University College, London; and Glasgow Caledonian University), with local NHS trusts, and with national institutions (RCM Campaign for Normal Births and National HIV Nurses Association).
