Research & Impact

Research in our Faculty

Our applied clinical and health research seeks to improve the healthcare experience and outcomes for patients and those important to them, wherever they are cared for. We pioneer the very best in nursing, midwifery and palliative care by integrating:

  • Cutting edge international research to discover, test and implement new interventions and treatments that build knowledge to lead policy and practice.
  • Skilled multi-professional care across the life span from birth to death through top-quality evidence-based clinical care and support to patients, carers, and family.
  • Innovation in education, training and engagement that advances policy and practice locally, nationally and globally, engaging the patients and the public, whilst inspiring and equipping tomorrow's leaders.

Research with impact

Our world-leading research impacts and influences healthcare experiences and outcomes for patients, wherever they are cared for. We build knowledge, lead policy and practice and improve outcomes for patients and those important to them.

Our academics work with other universities, industry, healthcare providers and policy makers both locally and globally, to ensure that our research is relevant and influence policy and government on nursing, midwifery and palliative care.
