Introduction

The clinical leadership and quality theme seeks to develop an evidence base that supports an understanding of the unique contribution of nurses and midwives to healthcare delivery.

Three main areas of research and development activity:
1) Understanding Clinical leadership and its impact
2) Safe staffing and outcomes/experience of nursing/midwifery care
3) Innovations through the use of technology

The clinical leadership and quality theme cuts across all other themes. We will work with other theme leads to ensure nurses and midwives are supported by the most appropriate theme team.
