Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre


The Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre supports multidisciplinary research that has a direct and measurable impact on patient outcomes and wellbeing. Our work directly supports the evidence-based delivery of high-quality and sustainable healthcare services. Through research and education, we aim to create a culture of inquiry that supports and energises our workforce to ask critical questions, generate knowledge and ensure that all care is supported by the best evidence.​ 

Between 2017 and 2024, the Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre has led or supported nationally significant health research; more than $18 million in research competitive research funding and over 450 peer-reviewed publications.

Our team brings together clinicians and academics from nursing, midwifery, allied health, statistics, and economics to identify and solve applied clinical problems. These problems are derived from real-world practice and involve preventing and controlling infections, improving medication safety, delivering comprehensive care, and recognising/responding to acute clinical deterioration. O​ur work involves the authentic co-design of solutions that meet the community's diverse needs.
