The Deakin JBI Centre contributes to the science of evidence implementation/ utilisation as well as promoting evidence-based practice through the development and evaluation of internationally excellent systems for evidence location, appraisal, translation and utilisation.
The School of Nursing at Deakin University has an established research program focusing on quality and risk management in clinical and aged care (QRM). This primary focus of research ensures that relevant and responsive research is undertaken in the areas of quality care and improving patient outcomes across hospital, aged care, and community care settings. Research findings are also influential in policy development at local, state and national levels. To promote engagement, our existing networks of clinical partnerships are involved in developing and advising the Centre’s activity. These partners are: The Alfred Hospital; Barwon Health; Cabrini Health; Eastern Health; Epworth Centre, Northern Health, Southern Health and Uniting Care Community Options.
