Centre for Nursing Research

Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital believes that high quality research is fundamental to the future of nursing.

As a result of this core belief, the Centre for Nursing Research was developed in conjunction with Edith Cowan University and has more recently established partnerships with Curtin University and Murdoch University.

This innovative and unique framework gives our nurses the opportunity to work with experienced academic researchers to advance nursing practice through practical research programs, explore clinical practice issues relevant to nursing and work towards improving outcomes for patients and their families.
