Improving the Health and Wellbeing of Women, Children and Families
This theme is served by The Childbirth, Reproduction and Maternity Care Research Group and the ‘Children, Young People and Families’ Health and Wellbeing’ Research Group. Both groups aim to conduct high quality, ethical and accessible research that will support women, their babies, children and families through all stages of the maternity period and childhood, within a culture of partnership and inclusiveness. Research within this theme identifies and examines factors that influence health in families, explores experiences of ill-health in mothers, babies, children and families, and evaluates strategies to promote family health and individual recovery. All research is conducted with and for our clients and is designed to be relevant to their needs, and to the needs of those working in the health services, developing health policy and driving innovative change in service delivery.
