Healthcare Education Research and Evaluation

Healthcare Education Research and Evaluation (HERE)

Our research group members all share an interest in healthcare education and professional development across the entire lifespan of the career of healthcare professionals including nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, radiographers, rehabilitation scientists, occupational therapists and paramedics.

We have a wealth of experience in both qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods approaches to research and evaluation and are experts in a wide range of healthcare fields. We are well-connected with NHS Trust and employers and work in close partnership with commissioners including Health Education England.

Examples of projects and research topics at our own pedagogical practices range from student selection to their employability, as well as professional development of the healthcare workforce at the different stages in their careers.
