• Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research
  • OxINMAHR is a Faculty-wide Research Institute which comprises a number of research centres and research groups.

    We are a community of scholars who share a passion to identify, examine and implement best quality health care within our areas of expertise. Whilst we span various disciplines, our common goal is to produce world-class collaborative health care research.

    The aims of the Institute are to:

    • Build a community of inter-disciplinary scholars linked by a common goal to produce world-class health and social care research.
    • Produce high quality research which aligns with National Health Service, National Institute of Health Research, Government and International health and social care priorities.
    • Develop research capacity within and across professions, disciplines and departments.
    • Facilitate collaboration and integration of areas of research to maximise impact.
    • Provide a mentorship and performance development framework for senior active researchers in health and social care research.
    • Establish operational and governance structures to shape strategic priorities, report on activity and provide a central conduit for key external partners.
    • Provide strategic advice to the Faculty Executive Team on the development of Health Research in partnership with the Oxford Academic Health Science Centre.
  • Our research activities

    Our three key areas of research activity are:

    • Collaboration: We work with a range of NHS, government, charity, public and industry partners to leverage national and international support. We partner with the public to identify and develop shared research projects and activities.
    • Dissemination: We share our current research findings in a number of ways including: academic publications; seminars; invitational lectures; conferences; public events and social media. Our focus is on how our research impacts practice and policy, and where future research should be directed.
    • Education and Training: We support the development of practitioners and academic staff to become high quality researchers. Our research development opportunities are open to a wide range of disciplines and include secondments, clinical and visiting academic fellowships and a variety of doctoral programmes.

    We undertake multi-disciplinary and collaborative research (across professional groups and scientific disciplines) to generate new and impactful knowledge.

    Our research centres

    Our Research Centres below incorporate a number of Research Groups. Each Research Centre has a Director and each Research Group has a designated leader.
