Monash Health's partnership with Deakin's School of Nursing

Director of Nursing and Midwifery Education Strategy at Monash Health, Katrina Nankervis, talks about the relationship between Monash Health and Deakin University.

The network connects the School of Nursing and Midwifery and its Centre for Quality and Patient Safety Research (QPS) to six major health services in Victoria.

Strengthening the link between research, education and practice

Through this network, we conduct multidisciplinary, multi-site research, which feeds directly into our course content, education for the health services and clinical practice.

Partners as teaching staff

Each partner healthcare organisation has a joint appointment with the school in the form of a professor of clinical nursing, associate professors and senior research fellows. These joint appointments ensure our curriculum is evidence based and the research of the school is specific to the health care needs of the community.
