Welcome to Research

The School of Nursing and Midwifery in Trinity College opened in 1996 and has established itself as a leading force in national and international healthcare research. The School has the highest proportion and number of PhD qualified staff amongst all Schools of Nursing and Midwifery in Ireland.

The School conducts research that is of high social relevance and is guided by college, national and international research, along with nursing, midwifery and healthcare strategies. Our development to date has seen the establishment of a strong base of research expertise across the breadth of healthcare research utilising many different methodologies. Our aim is to undertake research that is cutting edge, evidence-based, user-led, innovative and translatable into enhanced outcomes for healthcare, policy, professional practice, intervention, treatment and service delivery.

Drawing from our strong, vibrant and inclusive research community, our research has been consolidated into the five main themes above. The research displayed in these linked pages reflects investigations carried out by our academic staff, postdoctoral research fellows, research assistants and postgraduate research students as well as college, health services, national and international collaborations.
