- About Deakin
The Eastern Health - Deakin University Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre is a collaborative partnership that drives research to improve patient outcomes within the disciplines of nursing and midwifery. The partnership between Eastern Health and Deakin University commenced in 1999 and now incorporates all Eastern Health sites. The Centre, led by Professor Julie Considine, is committed to excellence in healthcare through translating research findings into clinical practice.
Our vision is to be nationally and internationally recognised as a centre of research excellence
Our aim is to conduct high quality research that informs clinical practice, education, and policy development and improves health outcomes of patients through effective risk management and workforce development.
The research activities of the Eastern Health-Deakin University Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre span acute, subacute, community and residential care and inform strategic directions for clinical practice, education, research and healthcare policy development. We also recognise that a multi-disciplinary approach is vital to patient care so we work with multi-disciplinary teams that include nurses, medical officers, allied health personnel, policy makers, health information technologists, patients and families.
Our research is strongly focused on quality and safety in healthcare and comprises three major programs of research:
Areas of research interest to date include (but are not limited to) clinical decision making and evidence-based practice in general medical and surgical care, oncology, palliative and end-of-life care, emergency care, critical care, peri-operative and post-anaesthesia care, residential aged care, subacute care, and maternity and women's health.
