At the School of Nursing and Midwifery we have a passion for finding better ways to educate and train nurses and midwives and enhance their capacity to professionally and competently contribute to the improved well being in our community.
The school offers a diverse and exciting mix of courses that are developed in consultation with industry groups and combine the latest theory with hands-on, practical experiences.
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:
How do we work towards making the care we provide more family centred? Come along to hear presentations on our innovative research involving children, families and staff and strategies for influencing practice change.
Come along and listen to a collection of short presentations on key challenges and issues in the health workforce, primary care, palliative care, and child health.
