The Clinical Nursing Research Group (CNRG) is led by Florence Nightingale Foundation Professor of Clinical Nursing Research, Christi Deaton, joined by Dr. Ian Wellwood, Frances Early and Annette Aylward. They join a rapidly expanding multi-disciplinary team of researchers at the Department of Primary Care and Public Health as members of the Primary Care Unit. 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), Cambridge Collaboration and Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC), Eastern Academic Health Sciences Network (EAHSN), PublicHealth@Cambridge Strategic Research Network, and the Cambridge Cardiovascular Strategic Research Initiative.
