The Nurses and Midwives e-cohort study (NMeS) was conceived and launched in 2006 by a team of researchers. Led by Professor Catherine Turner from UQ’s School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work, the team created a study that has gone on to become a great success, make a significant contribution to the industry.

The NMeS is an international longitudinal population-based study that aims to examine factors associated with both workforce and health outcomes in a cohort of nurses and midwives from Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Publications and reports from the study have been made available to a variety of policy-makers and stakeholders – 15 papers have been published as well as 6 articles in the press.
