Research Programs

Epworth logo Epworth Deakin CCNR

The focus of the research program conducted through the Centre for Clinical Nursing Research focuses on the delivery of safe, high quality evidence based clinical care across acute and subacute hospital settings.

Case study methodologies using mixed method designs are used to develop comprehensive research strategies to examine quality and safety of clinical practice within complex clinical environments. Complementary qualitative and quantitative methods are used to address research questions that are not possible to investigate using traditional single method designs. The development of research strategies and data collection tools for these projects is ongoing.
