The goal of the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine’s Research is to contribute to the achievement of improved health outcomes of individuals, families, and communities at a national and international level.

In meeting the above goal emphasis is placed on:

  • creating a vibrant research environment to facilitate positive research outcomes for higher degree by research students, academic staff and industry partners
  • the development of international evidence-based best practice in health care
  • building on established links within the Faculty of Health Sciences, Curtin University and Australian and international partners.

The school has a mental health focus which spans our five research priority areas. In addition, we support the WA Group for Evidence Informed Healthcare Practice, which collaborates with the Joanna Briggs Institute.
