The Clinical Nursing Research Group (CNRG) is led by Florence Nightingale Foundation Clinical Professor of Nursing, Christi Deaton, and is a multi-disciplinary team of researchers in the Primary Care Unit in the Department of Primary Care and Public Health. A full list of staff is available here
The remit of the CNRG is to conduct research focusing on improving outcomes in people with long-term conditions, and to build research capacity and capability among nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUHFT) and the School of Clinical Medicine.
CNRG research spans across settings and systems of health care and contributes to the work of the PCU to reduce the burden of ill health:
- by identifying and targeting the behaviours that lead to chronic disease;
- by improving early detection of illness;
- by improving the delivery of health services in community settings; and
- by teaching medical students, clinicians, researchers and educators.
Additionally it contributes to important local research and clinical networks such as the Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) , Cambridge University Health Partners (CUHP), and the Cambridge Cardiovascular Strategic Research Initiative.
