Deakin-QPS research is strongly aligned with the School of Nursing and Midwifery's Clinical Partnership Program, the first coordinated program of its kind in Australia. This extensive program connects Deakin University's School of Nursing and Midwifery to eight health care organisations in the public and private sector and in metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas of Victoria.
Each partner health care organisation has a joint appointment with the School of Nursing and Midwifery in the form of either a Professor of Clinical Nursing or a Senior Research Fellow. This model facilitates research and relates the School's education offerings to specific health care needs of the community.
