Welcome to Research at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin

Welcome to Research at Trinity College School of Nursing & Midwifery. Our School is a dynamic research-focused environment where we advance nursing and midwifery through strong partnerships with public-patient representatives, clinicians and academics. Our close ties to clinical practice inspire our talented staff and students to generate valuable insights and innovative solutions to benefit those for whom, and with whom, we conduct research. Our reputation for research excellence is further enhanced by our extensive international collaborations.

We are committed to nurturing the next generation of researchers and building even greater capacity in the areas of care that are particularly important to us- these include children’s health, maternal care, ageing, intellectual disability, mental health, cancer and healthcare innovation. Yet, our approach to research transcends conventional metrics; it is firmly rooted in engagement and in a framework that emphasizes impacts that extend to the heart of what matters most. Working closely with our key stakeholders, we will continue co-create research questions and define outcomes that hold genuine meaning and significance.

The initiatives outlined in our new Research Strategy are ambitious however they are informed by current and future health & social care challenges. The School of Nursing and Midwifery aims to meet these challenges head-on. As we put our strategy into action, we will collectively support our researchers to make significant contributions to the advancement of healthcare, both on a national and international scale. We do this while serving the people of Dublin and Ireland and while upholding our core values of dignity & respect, care and compassion. 

Let’s work together to transform future healthcare - Collaborate with us!
