Monash Health

Centre for Nursing Research -
Deakin University and Monash Health Partnership


The Partnership between Deakin University and Monash (formerly Southern) Health was established in May 2006. This partnership has resulted in the development of the Centre for Nursing Research - Deakin University and Monash Health Partnership, which is based at Monash Medical Centre, Clayton Campus. The Centre for Nursing Research conducts research activities across all Monash Health sites.

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 is led by Professor Alison Hutchinson and supported by Research Fellows, multidisciplinary clinicians and nurse researchers. It 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.
