The Centre for Quality and Patient Safety Research

The Deakin University Partners in Nursing and Midwifery have pioneered academic-industry partnerships, embedding researchers from Deakin’s Centre for Quality and Patient Safety Research within six major Victorian health services – Alfred Health, Barwon Health, Eastern Health, Epworth HealthCare, Monash Health and Western Health.

Established in 2009, our partnerships integrate public and private health services with one of Australia’s largest Schools of Nursing and Midwifery and a leading strategic research centre focused on quality of care and patient safety. Our partners govern 29 acute and subacute care hospitals and 11 residential aged care facilities, employ approximately 30,000 nurses and midwives, and provide care for in excess of 3 million Victorians annually. Our research pillars of patient safety, patient experience, and health workforce span the whole patient journey, and encompass residential, community, subacute and acute care settings.
