Reproductive health and childbirth
The Reproductive Health and Childbirth Specialty
Group is one of 23 Specialty Groups which provide
national networks of topic-specific expertise. These
groups are key to the success of the CCRN. They
work at both national and local levels to ensure
the successful delivery of research within their
specialties. This means ensuring that studies are
delivered to target and on time.
The remit of the Reproductive Health and Childbirth Specialty Group is to support a national portfolio of structured research studies including physiological understanding, prevention, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of obstetric and gynaecological conditions.
The Reproductive Health and Childbirth portfolio includes:
- Physiological investigation of normal processes, such as childbirth
- Childbirth and Maternity research
- Reproductive Medicine and contraception
- Fetal Medicine
- Maternal medicine.
One of the main purposes of the Specialty Group is to develop and support a research infrastructure within the specialty which promotes engagement of the Reproductive Health and Childbirth clinical community and provides the local support necessary to undertake high quality research studies within the NHS delivered to time and target.
