Utveckling av studentens, yrkesverksammas och patienters lärande är centralt. Hur praktisk och teoretisk kunskap kan förenas i en sammansatt kompetens studeras inom ramen för olika vårdprofessioners utbildning.

Forskningen har stark koppling till det omgivande samhället och avspeglar Högskolan Västs profil Arbetsintegrerat lärande (AIL). Det kritiska perspektivet framhålls för att kunna verka för en hälsofrämjande, jämlik- och hållbar vård där människors livsvillkor, vårdbehov och resurser har betydelse för hälsan. Miljön samlar forskning om hälsa, vård och omsorg, såväl i institutionella miljöer som i hemmet och inom arbetslivet.
