About the Centre for Nursing and Midwifery Research

The aim of the Centre for Nursing and Midwifery Research (CNMR) is to generate evidence that translates to quality healthcare and is recognised nationally and internationally for its quality and impact on practice, education and policy.

The CNMR supports a research culture that encourages engagement and collaboration, achieves highly regarded outputs, enhances collaboration with industry and key stakeholder groups, establishes international links with scholars and other partners, and profiles a strong successful cohort of HDR students.

Projects are aligned with local and national priorities, and are based on mutual respect between researchers and the people with whom the research is being conducted.

The CNMR focuses on health in regional, rural, remote and tropical contexts in order to consolidate and strengthen nursing and midwifery research within the following broad areas:

  • Enhancing clinical outcomes in nursing and midwifery
  • Transforming the nursing and midwifery workforce
  • Closing the Gap: transforming Indigenous healthcare
  • Innovations transforming healthcare
