High calibre research that is improving healthcare outcomes for patients happens every day across Metro North. Our annual Metro North Research Excellence Awards are a chance to recognise and reward outstanding achievement in research across all clinical specialties and professions.
Employees of Metro North Hospital and Health Service engaged in health and medical research are encouraged to nominate for the awards. There are seven categories reflecting the various stages of research: three individual awards and four project awards.
The 2021 Research Excellence Awards will include a special award, The Professor Joan Webster Nursing and Midwifery Award to recognise the research contribution by our nurses and midwives. This individual award seeks to acknowledge a nurse or midwife whose research helps to enhance and improve patient outcomes within Metro North.
More information regarding all the categories is included in the submission guidelines below.
Finalists will be invited to an awards ceremony in July.
