“Nurses are at the forefront of palliative care provision and therefore instrumental in improving the quality of life of people confronted by serious illness and their family carers. It is crucial that care is underpinned by research evidence and that a critical mass of palliative care nursing scholars is established. The Dame Quentin Bryce Palliative Care Nursing Research Fund is a much needed and very tangible way of supporting the evolution of palliative care.” Professor Peter Hudson, Director of the Centre for Palliative Care.
The Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO is an Advocate of the Centre for Palliative Care.
The Dame Quentin Bryce Palliative Care Nursing Research Fund is used to support research costs associated with research into Palliative Care Nursing. The funds will support research in palliative care that will improve quality of care for people diagnosed with advanced disease and their families/caregivers. The funds are offered by the Centre for Palliative Care (c/o St Vincent’s Hospital) and the Department of Nursing, The University of Melbourne.
Students can apply for up to 30K per annum for funds to support Graduate Research. Funding may be requested to assist you to help complete a Masters of Philosophy (MPhil) or a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Some examples of this could be: Publication costs, conference attendance, supplementing your cost of living so you can go full-time, enrolment in coursework/professional development related to thesis, data collection or analysis costs.
