Research & Enterprise in Education, Health & Wellbeing

Centre for Health and Social Care Improvement (CHSCI)

The Centre for Health and Social Care Improvement (CHSCI) has been established for over 12 years and is now co-located within the Institute of Health Professions and Institute of Public Health, Social Work and Care in the FEHW. CHSCI is staffed by researchers from a range of professions and disciplines across health, social care and wellbeing; consequently our research has broad professional scope. Our mission in CHSCI is to be a Centre of excellence in health and social care research to inform, support and enhance policy, education, practice and service provision in health and wellbeing. There are three themed research groups which will underpin our work and form the basis of our development going forward as a research centre:

  1. Loss, Bereavement and End of Life Care (led by Professor Magi Sque)
  2. Policy, Health Equalities and Social Welfare (led by Dr Angela Morgan) 
  3. Epidemiology and Global Public Health (led by Dr Ruoling Chen)

Some examples of projects are: Dr R Chen - Depression and risk of stroke; Dr A Clifford - Disability and leadership at the University; Professor M Sque - Home from home?: A case study of the first year settlement experiences of EU migrant nurses working in one NHS Trust; Dr W Walker - Public knowledge, understanding and views of hospice care: A questionnaire survey.

CHSCI also incorporates the Centre for Applied Research and Education (CARE), which is a Dementia group set up primarily for decision making, information sharing, and establishing an identity and point of contact within the University for dementia work.
