Research leadership honoured

The Director of the Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre Professor Margaret Fry has received a prestigious University of Technology Sydney award celebrating research excellence.

The Dean of the Faculty of Health presented the award, recognising an outstanding commitment to innovation, excellence, leadership and teamwork.
Professor Fry said she is proud to have received the award especially after such an extraordinary year.

“2021 has been a challenging year for all health workers as we responded to the changing needs of our community,” she said. 

“Despite the hurdles, I’ve worked with our nursing and midwifery colleagues to provide the highest possible quality care based on the best available evidence.

“This award directs the spotlight to our nursing and midwifery research leadership and our contribution to practice change.

The NSLHD Nursing and Midwifery research program is extensive and our centre supports clinicians to improve the care our patients receive through evidence-based practice change.
