The CNMR brings together UCLH and UCL to support and enable nurses and midwives in developing world-class quality of care research. It is located in, and funded by, the UCLH/UCL Biomedical Research Centre.
The CNMR aims to establish a formal Clinical Academic Pathway to develop clinical and academic research leadership for nurses and midwives at UCLH and UCL. It includes a resource centre to facilitate all nurses and midwives employed by UCLH and UCL wishing to engage in developing evidence-based practice.
The CNMR seeks to encourage a process of individual and institutional development that will lead to higher levels of skills and greater ability to perform useful research in partnership with patients, academics and clinicians.
