Research Centre for Clinical and Community Practice Innovation
Nursing research at Griffith University is conducted through the Research Centre for Clinical and Community Practice Innovation, established in 2003.
RCCCPI has world leading nurse researchers in the areas of Acute and Critical care, Ageing and Older People, and Family and Midwifery. This was acknowledged in the most recent Excellence in Research for Australia (2010) assessment by the Australian Government, where nursing research at Griffith University was given a rating of 4 ("above world standard"). The first National Centre of Research Excellence in Nursing Interventions for Hospitalized Patients (NCREN) sits within RCCCCPI. The Centre was awarded $2.5 million funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council and the researchers are building an unprecedented body of evidence to inform nursing practices on skin integrity and symptom management into the future.
