Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service

NMERU leads interdisciplinary, person-centred nursing and inter-professional research with the aim of improve health outcomes for those requiring health care in the hospital and community. With strong collaborations with Griffith University, NMERU links academic researchers and clinicians to produce high quality research of relevance to the health of people living in Southeast Queensland and further afield. A strong nursing Professoriate exists within NMERU with leads in the areas of acute and critical care, emergency care, sub-acute and aged care, infection control and midwifery. The Professoriate brings together teams of researchers from both academic and clinical backgrounds and has a strong record of incorporating patients and consumers as key partners in the research endeavour.
