Healthcare Technologies Research Group

Research aligns with the definition of Health Technology by the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment (2021-2024) as being “an intervention (test, device, procedure, programme or system) developed to prevent, diagnose or treat medical conditions; promote health; provide rehabilitation; or organise healthcare delivery”. Our work with technology aims to provide enhancement to existing service provision whether that be along the patient care pathway for various clinical populations and places, or to transform the teaching and learning experience by healthcare providers.

Midwifery Subject Group 

The Midwifery Subject Group (MSG) are an interdisciplinary team of highly experienced midwives, who work to produce evidence to underpin clinical midwifery practice. The evidence produced is generated from well-designed studies, with results disseminated through meaningful outputs that are readily accessible to practising midwives who work with women, partners, and families, who in turn can transfer findings into clinical application.
