Our research focus
Ageing and aged care
With extensive knowledge in this area, our research is based on clinical expertise working with older people and we aim to enhance wellbeing and promote safe and evidence-based care for older people.
We aim to foster and grow quality education research that promotes the teaching/research nexus and translates this new knowledge back into healthcare education, policy and practice.
Health impacts of climate change and sustainable healthcare
We use digital health as a platform to deliver more efficient healthcare, using a One Health philosophy that connects public health, animal health, plant health and environmental health.
Infection prevention and control
Approximately one in ten inpatients in hospitals have a healthcare associated infection. Research at MNM explores risk factors for healthcare associated infection and preventative strategies to improve patient safety. This also includes research into the prevention of new and emerging infections such as COVID-19.
The Intensive Care research theme is focused on improving the experiences and outcomes for intensive care unit (ICU) patients and their families. A sufficient and well ICU workforce underpins positive outcomes for patients, making ICU workforce research a high-interest area for the ICU theme.
Mental health nursing
We explore clients, relatives, and communities’ responses to ill mental health across the lifespan, and how nurses and other mental health professionals can assist them in improving their health.
Midwifery and women's health
our vision is improve women’s health and midwifery practice by generating new knowledge in areas of defined need.
Workforce and healthcare innovation
The health workforce has never been more challenged - by increasing demand for care and a shortage of available workforce.
Undertaking research and provide education about chronic wound treatment and management as well as prevention.
