Centre for Nursing Research - Deakin University and Monash Health Partnership
The Centre for Nursing Research is a partnership between Deakin University and Monash (formerly Southern) Health. It is located at Monash Medical Centre, Clayton Campus, Clayton Road.
The Centre is led by Professor Alison Hutchinson and supported by Research Fellows, multidisciplinary clinicians and nurse researchers.
Deakin University’s partnership with Monash provides clinical research opportunities for nurses across a variety of acute and specialty health care settings. This collaborative partnership provides a unique opportunity for nurses seeking clinically focussed research training or clinicians seeking experience in multidisciplinary research projects in critical care, acute care, and specialty health care contexts.
The Centre has a research agenda that specialises in developing and implementing evidence for nursing practice to enhance quality and safety in the delivery of health care. In particular, the research program is currently evaluating the impact of models of nursing care delivery on health outcomes, medication quality and safety issues, and the impact of emerging technologies on patients and carers.
