The Nurses, Midwives and Allied Health Professionals (N, M & AHP) forum is a group of PhD students who have a professional background in nursing, midwifery or an allied health profession. Initiated by Professor Steven Ersser, the forum was set up in the recognition that PhD students with such a background may have different needs to other students.
It aims to offer peer support, share experience and skills, and also to provide recognition and voice to the students, some of whom are not part of a research group. The forum has already met twice and had keen discussions on the format and topics for future meetings.
New members are very welcome, this is a student-led group, open to those PhD students with an N, M & AHP background either studying within Health Sciences or working here and studying at another university. Meetings will be held monthly, lasting for an hour and a half and on alternating days and times. If you are interested in attending or have any questions please contact us via Di Stockdale: firstname.lastname@example.org.
