Research Group in Nursing Care

 Research group

Group Leader

Silvia Esteban Sepúlveda

The Research Group in Nursing Care arises from the need to formally integrate the Parc de Salut Mar nursing into the research field, encompassing all the parts of which it is comprised (Hospital del Mar, Hospital de l’Esperança, Centre Peracamps, Centre Fòrum, Centre Emili Mira and Escola Superior d’Infermeria del Mar).

The Group’s objective is to generate scientific nursing knowledge and to apply it to evidence-based assistance, with the ultimate aim of improving health, both in terms of care given to the patient and to the community.

It is worth noting that several members of the Group have participated or are actively involved in various national and international research projects.

The main lines of research will focus on training patients to manage their own health and the training of nurses who care for patients.
