Established in 2014, the Institute focuses on driving and supporting collaborative research, evaluation, clinical education and care delivery. The Institute brings academics from across the University together with external partners who have shared interests in improving health and social care. The institute aims to:
- Lead innovation in professional education;
- Develop applied research to drive evidence-informed care;
- Provide a partnership forum for enterprise and innovation
The Institute provides a focus for knowledge-exchange and networking through a range of events, with opportunities for teaching, learning and research.
Our overall aim is to improve care of people locally, nationally, and internationally. We will achieve this by building on our core principles of high quality care for all and collaborative partnership. Improvements in health and social care are based on the cornerstones of research, innovation and education. High quality research drives evidence-informed innovation in care which is translated into changes in practice through education of those needing and delivering care.
