Centre for Health Practice Innovation
Nursing research at Griffith University is conducted through the Centre for Health Practice Innovation, established in 2003.
The Centre for Health Practice Innovation (HPI) has world leading nurse researchers in the areas of Acute and Critical care, Ageing and Older People, and Family and Midwifery. Griffith's reputation in nursing research is growing significantly, with an Australian Research Council ERA rating of '4', above world standard, for nursing research in 2012.
The first National Centre of Research Excellence in Nursing Interventions for Hospitalized Patients (NCREN) sits within HPI. 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.
