Department of Nursing and Midwifery
We are based in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, which is one of the most remote and rural regions of the United Kingdom.
Academic staff include nurses, midwives and behavioural scientists at the Inverness and Stornoway campuses. We conduct research to improve health and wellbeing in remote and rural regions that has international significance and spans urban populations. Health and wellbeing is defined broadly to include functional, emotional and social health and our research expertise includes:
