Meet our team
The NRI brings together researchers and clinicians focusing on implementation science, examining ways to promote evidence translation and change clinical practice.
Our researchers have skills in systematic reviews (qualitative and quantitative), randomised controlled trials, process evaluations, and qualitative research. We collaborate with world-class national and international researchers, multidisciplinary clinicians and policy makers.
Our implementation science research focuses on health systems and clinician behaviour change for improved patient assessment, communication, stroke management, pressure injury prevention and treatment, hospital-acquired complications, and de-implementation of low-value nursing care.
The Nursing Research Institute is located in Sydney and Melbourne: St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne and Australian Catholic University. We work collaboratively across both hospitals, and with multidisciplinary clinicians, policy makers, non-government organisations and other academic institutions, nationally and internationally.
