Strategic research framework

Sydney Nursing School's research approach is based on the principle that people, families and communities are at the heart of everything nurses and midwives do.

This diagram illustrates our ve research priority areas, all of which extend across the lifespan (inner ring) – from healthy beginnings (midwifery and women’s health), throughout life (healthy life), to end-of-life care.

Our five research priority areas are:

  • Cancer
  • Chronic disease and ageing
  • Infection and Immunity
  • Injury and Acute Illness
  • Mental Health
