The Nursing Research Institute (NRI) was created in 2009 and is a collaboration between ACU and St Vincent's Health Australia (Sydney) (SVHA Syd).
We undertake multidisciplinary clinical and health services research that is focused on improving patient outcomes and health systems with a particular emphasis on implementation science research, that is, the study of how to implement evidence-based care.
With 17 full time and part time research staff, the NRI offers both postgraduate students and SVHAS clinicians opportunities to participate in our research program. NRI researchers have been awarded approximately $22 million in grants and awards and have published over 130 peer-reviewed journal articles.
