Organisation profile

The Clinical Nursing Research Unit is an independent unit at Aalborg University Hospital, which provides research across all clinical departments and is based on issues that emerge from clinical nursing practice. Our goal is to contribute to the development of clinical nursing, which is why our main task is to link clinical practice and research to a functioning whole.

Nursing is a dynamic field characterised by great diversity and complexity. As such, the research unit is performing research in several areas based on different methodological approaches depending on the actual research issues and item field. We have a particular focus on Fundamentals of Care, which, based on a worldwide phenomenon of ' deficient nursing care ', must contribute to the development of research-based knowledge in clinical nursing. The overall aim of the Fundamentals of Care Research Program is that patients/citizens experience person-centred care that consists of reflected nursing care on the basis of continuity and evidence, and that the professionality of nurses is strengthened.
