The Centre for Nursing, Midwifery, Health and Social Care is one of three OxINMAHR Research Centres. The Centre hosts seminars with speakers presenting on a range of topics related to research in nursing, midwifery, health and social care. Speakers include a mix of external and internal speakers as well as PhD students, early career and senior researchers.
