Research leadership

By being part of and working with research teams the NMRC connects clinician researchers with resources. This supports the development of small scale pilots and concept development through to the implementation of large multisite funded projects.

The NMRC also undertakes externally funded research focused on broader nursing and midwifery workforce and professional issues.

Research capacity building initiatives

The NMRC is available to provide advice, support and guidance for individuals and teams who would like to upskill in any aspect of the research process, for example conducting a literature review, designing a research protocol, including qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research, applying for competitive research funding, project management, data analysis, and reporting on research outcomes. To access these services please complete the NMRC Request for Consultation Form

Additionally the NMRC provides a number of research skills seminars and education forums throughout the year. These seminars and forums are designed to profile research being undertaken by nurses and midwives across the LHD, to enhance research skills development, and to provide an opportunity for clinician researchers to network and collaborate. Upcoming programs and events are posted on the NMRC news and events page.
