Much of our research is carried out in partnership with health and social care organisations in both the statutory and voluntary sectors. Strong collaborative partnerships have been established with NHS Trusts, Local Authorities, Strategic Health Authorities and independent charitable foundations. Our faculty's research strategy supports this by fostering staff participation at conferences, workshops and in related editorial, research and scientific committees.
The aim of the Faculty's research strategy is to involve our academic staff in research and scholarship. It is value-based, in terms of seven key principles:
Research and scholarly activity within the faculty includes pedagogical research, clinical research, practice development and applied scholarly activities. It is focused and co-ordinated within the Faculty's Institute of Primary Care and Public Health, and the Institute for Leadership and Service Improvement. However, individual research activities are also encouraged and facilitated to enable staff to maximise their contribution to scholarship and research in support of the Faculty's aim to sponsor a vibrant and inclusive academic culture.
Our research and scholarship report presents the research and scholarly activities undertaken by the Faculty of Health and Social Care.
