Research in the School of Nursing and Allied Health

Research that is changing lives

Our breadth of expertise in the health and social care field means we understand organisational, professional, practitioner and service user needs.

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, 68% of LJMU’s health-related research was considered world leading or internationally excellent. We collaborate on research projects with other institutions and health and social care service providers. We focus on a specific practice-related problem or investigate an aspect of health and social care where there are gaps in current knowledge.

Investing in our people

We encourage the development of research skills in our staff, with several members having successfully completed PhDs and others registered for MPhils/PhDs. Our staff are involved in a variety of research-based activities leading to a high number of publications and conference presentations.
