What is CARE Collaboration?
The CARE Collaboration Scholarship programme, founded in 2008, is a collaboration between the HSE’s Nursing and Midwifery Planning Development Unit (NMPDU) South East Office and the Department of Nursing and Health Care at SETU. The NMPDU provides funding to support full-time/ part-time MSc Scholarship stipends to support Clinically Focused Nursing and Midwifery Research within the South East of Ireland. The CARE Collaboration MSc Scholarship programme is administered by the Department of Nursing and Health Care, which provides registration and academic supervision of the Care Collaboration Scholars and their programme of research.
The Care Collaboration Oversight Group is responsible for the governance and oversight of the Care Collaboration scholarship programme with representation from academia (SETU), funding agency (NMPDU SE) and HSE (Clinical Partners).
The Oversight Group terms of reference include the following:
- Issuing an annual call to clinical services across the South East to submit research ideas for funding consideration
- Collation and selection of project ideas for funding
- Selection of applicants for Scholarship funding
- Oversight of the progress of scholars across the trajectory of funded projects
