SMERC work is organised to align research with NES’s strategic themes: Workforce, Improved Quality, Enhanced Educational Infrastructure, New Models of Care, and An Improved Organisation.
SMERC has produced influential reports, academic papers in high impact journals, conference keynote talks and presentations of research work locally, nationally and internationally related to each of these themes.
SMERC work is of the highest academic quality, and is recognised internationally. For example a SMERC project (co-funded by the Clinical Skills Managed Educational Network [CSMEN] of Scotland), won the CAMES (Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation) Inaugural Prize for best research paper in medical simulation.
