The purpose of this HRB-CRCI/IRNM Research Nurse/Midwife Support & Development Grant call was to provide nursing/midwifery members of the IRNM with the opportunity for professional development and engagement through participation at conferences and courses. This grant allowed Research Nurses/Midwives to participate in network building and professional development opportunities, unique learning experiences and educational programmes, to benefit the Research Nurse/Midwife and the wider research nurse/midwife community.
