Launch Event: Centre for Critical Research in Nursing and Midwifery

Event information

START DATE 8 December 2015
START TIME 03:00pm

College Building, Middlesex University, The Burroughs London NW44BT

Middlesex University celebrates the launch of its new centre drawing together academics from the fields of nursing and midwifery.

About the Centre for Critical Research in Nursing and Midwifery (CCRNM).

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.

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.
