Kate Gerrish

Professor of Nursing Research, School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK


As Professor of Nursing Research, I hold a joint appointment with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust where I have responsibility for leading the strategic development of nursing research and evidence-based practice initiatives. I also hold the position of Adjunct Professor in Transcultural Nursing at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden.

During a professional career spanning 30 years, I have held a variety of clinical nursing posts in both community and hospital settings in the UK and Zambia and gained experience teaching in under-graduate and graduate nurse education in several UK universities. I have contributed to research grants and awards totalling £23.7 million. I am currently the Implementation Lead for the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Allied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) for South Yorkshire, a five year programme of applied research and implementation of research findings in the self-management of long-term conditions. I have published widely in my field and co-edited the 6th edition of The Research Process in Nursing, a major research text for nurses in the UK.

Research Interest

My research interests focus in knowledge translation, nursing development and transcultural nursing.
