The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) recognises the importance of research to its activities. These include recognising advances in practice, management, education, and evaluating services and disseminating details to members.
One of the strategic goals of the College is to broaden and strengthen its research activities.
To this end, in addition to the work already being done by the RCM UK Board for Scotland and Headquarters, the RCM has begun to develop a research network group and to publish a quarterly research page in the RCM Midwives Journal to highlight and disseminate contemporary research activities.

Collaboration is the key to high quality research and the RCM is constantly seeking to make links with midwife researchers.
