At ECU, our research platforms and dedicated teams are built upon a collaboration of world-class researchers, industry leaders and clinical experts.
At the School of Nursing and Midwifery we have developed a research program that is grounded in making a real difference to people, their careers and families, the communities in which they live and the broader health and education sectors.
Our school’s research strengths include cancer and palliative care, aged care, mental health, acute and clinical care, midwifery, child health and primary health care.
The Centre for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Services Research is the school's research centre. Our research crosses the life span from health promotion, health maintenance and disease prevention through to end of life care, engaging with local and global communities.
Our work is underpinned by 3 cross cutting principles:
We undertake innovative research to develop knowledge, evaluate effectiveness and implement change in healthcare through interventions, treatments and knowledge to transform and shape policy and practice in three key areas.
