Research Methods and Evaluation Unit

We operate a Research Methods and Evaluation Unit (RMEU) through which we provide internal and external research methods expertise to support all areas of our activity. This includes gold standard research methods for evaluation studies, epidemiology, interventions, data analysis, health economy & experience-based co-design. We are unique in our co-creation and end-user involvement, as well as our digital integration methods into healthcare research, including the availability of our award-winning digital platform.

This unit enables us to respond rapidly to high priority emerging research and evaluation calls, across a diverse range of subject areas. We seek opportunities to apply our specialist skills within the context of transdisciplinary teams to ensure the highest quality of applied research and evaluation activity.

The RMEU is lead by Professor Petra Wark. The purpose of the unit is to add value to and strengthen our research and conduct high-quality internationally recognised health research within its own rights. The unit works in partnership with our postgraduate students and staff through delivering and supporting research, teaching, dissertation and thesis supervision, mentoring programmes, and CPD. The core team draws upon the expertise of colleagues  to widen its scope:
