Joint Research Network

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Joint Research Network was established in 2007.  As part of on-going development of maternity care services within the National Maternity Hospital (NMH) the Director of Midwifery and Nursing recognised that research links between the NMH and their education partners, University College Dublin, School Of Nursing, Midwifery and Health System should be formalised. The Joint Research Network was established by Mary Brosnan and Professor Michelle Butler to develop a research culture for midwives, student midwives and nurses. The vision and goals of the group were to translate evidence-based midwifery and nursing knowledge into practice. Since 2007, the group has expanded and evolved to include our Ireland East Hospital Group partners.

The 1st Joint Research Network Conference was held on Thursday the 13th of December 2017, see below for further information.
