Barwon Health

Barwon Health Centre for Nursing and Allied Health Research


The Centre for Nursing and Allied Health Research is a partnership between Deakin University and Barwon Health. It is located at The Geelong Hospital, Ryrie Street.

Barwon Health is Victoria's largest regional integrated health care provider. The organisation was formed from five independent health organisations to provide continuity of care for the individual through integrating acute, continuing, and community care services, from paediatric and birthing services, through acute and rehabilitation services, to aged and palliative care services. These services are provided through three programs Acute Health, Community and Mental Health, and Rehabilitation and Aged Care.

The partnership with Deakin University provides the opportunity for academic staff to collaborate with their clinical colleagues in multidisciplinary research teams to plan and implement research relevant to the current health care environment. In addition, Barwon Health's regional and rural location provides the opportunity for collaborative research across metropolitan and rural locations.
