Department of Nursing and Midwifery Studies:

The Department of Nursing and Midwifery Studies was established in 1993 to develop and promote appropriate education and research in nursing and midwifery.  The Department aims to undertake relevant research that will not only have academic outcomes but will also have a significant and ongoing impact on nursing and midwifery practice.  Our key research objective is to achieve excellence in our targeted areas of research which are:


·        Care of older people

·        Nursing/midwifery education

·        Practice innovations


There is a strong emphasis on the development of research links with academics from other disciplines within NUI, Galway and with external national and international partners, with health service providers and related agencies and with nursing and patient representative organisations. 


We look forward to meeting delegates at the conference and hope to forge new relationships.
