The South West Clinical School at Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust exists to promote evidence-based practice and clinically-focused non-medical research that enhances patient care.
A partnership between the Trust and the University of Plymouth, the Clinical School encourages and supports nurses, midwives, and other allied health professionals to look at their practice, challenge current thinking, try out new ideas and work out ways to measure what they're doing.
Our objectives are to:
- increase research capacity, skills, and outputs within nursing, midwifery and allied health professions
- increase evidence-based practice activity, enhancing the translation of evidence into practice
- strengthen the position of the patient as the focal point for care – putting the patient at the heart of the Clinical School’s activity.
