Located at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, the Western Australian Centre for Evidence Based Nursing and Midwifery (WACEBNM) is associated with Curtin University of Technology, Princess Margaret Hospital for Children and King Edward Memorial Hospitals and is a collaborating centre for the Joanna Briggs Institute.
The WA Centre for Evidence Based Nursing and Midwifery undertakes a range of practice-oriented research activities to improve the effectiveness of nursing practice and health care outcomes, with a particular focus on the health of women and children. To achieve this aim, the Western Australian Centre for Evidence Based Nursing and Midwifery carries out a range of activities that focus on an evidence based approach to women and children's health by:
conducting systematic reviews and analyses of the research literature;
collaborating with expert researchers and clinicians to facilitate the development of Best Practice Information Sheets based on the systematic review of the research;
participating in the dissemination and implementation of Best Practice Information Sheets and evaluating their impact on nursing and midwifery practice;
promoting and delivering short courses in evidence based nursing and midwifery for nursing clinicians, nursing researchers, nursing managers and nursing teachers; and
contributing to cost effective health care through the promotion of evidence based nursing and midwifery practice.
Full details of current research activities can be found on the Centre's website at http://wacebnm.curtin.edu.au/index.html
