    Centre for Critical Research in Nursing and Midwifery

    The Centre for Critical Research in Nursing and Midwifery draws together researchers in nursing and midwifery within the School of Health and Education. CCRNM defines 'critical' as research approaches that challenge taken-for-granted norms and aim to expose structures of power and domination.

    CCRNM Aims

    CCRNM aims to facilitate, co-ordinate and conduct high quality critical research in partnership with academic colleagues, healthcare providers, commissioners and other centres of excellence.

    CCRNM Mission

    We believe that research approaches that challenge taken-for-granted norms and aim to expose structures of power and domination are needed when studying and seeking to influence nursing and midwifery within today's NHS environment and beyond. The Centre's mission is to become a prominent centre for such work.

    Research carried out in the CCRNM seeks to understand, uncover, illuminate, transform and emancipate.
