Nursing & Midwifery Research Centre

The Sydney Local Health District Nursing & Midwifery Research Centre is committed to promote research and evidence based practice to support the effectiveness of nursing and midwifery care and enhance patient and family centred outcomes.

The SLHD Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre is affiliated with the University of Sydney, Sydney Research and has strong collaborations with local, national and international organisations.

The research activities of the SLHD Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre are aligned with the SLHD Nursing & Midwifery Service strategic priorities which inform the strategic directions for clinical practice, workforce, information & communication technology and research.

The goals of the SLHD Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre are to support the translation of research into practice and build a strong and independent nursing & midwifery presence across the SLHD through:

  • Building research capacity and research visibility for nurses and midwives
  • Providing research education and support that targets research practice and evidence use
  • Developing a body of innovative research that includes clinical intervention related Patient and Family Centred Care research for Patient Care Initiative activities

In 2017, the SLHD Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre will commence its two year Nursing Research Graduate Honours Program, providing an opportunity for graduate nurses to gain skills and knowledge in nursing research whilst undertaking a Transition to Professional Practice program. The Nursing Research Graduate Honours Program will allow Graduate Nurses to work in a part-time capacity whilst   advancing their knowledge, skills and experience of nurses/midwives in research and evidence-based practice
