Education and Nursing Research in Child Health
The Centre for Education and Nursing Research in Child Health's aim is to support and encourage nurses working in child and family health, neonatal, paediatric and adolescent health (hereafter termed child health nursing/nurses) to undertake research, ensure nursing practice in these specialty areas is evidence based and build nurses' post graduate education and professional development.
In 2001 the Centre for Education and Nursing Research in Child Health (The ENRiCH Centre) was developed as a partnership between Hunter New England Health, Kaleidoscope and the School of Nursing and Midwifery.
As well as scholarships for research and conference participation, and offering continuing education courses in the clinical context, the Centre has developed online courses for child health nurses and other health professionals. These courses are now offered as electives in the School of Nursing and Midwifery's Masters Programs.
Additionally, the ENRiCH Centre provides support and guidance relating to professional development opportunities, particularly those concerning postgraduate studies, for child health nurses working in the acute and/or community context within Hunter New England Health.
The Centre is also concerned with research development and the conduct of research focusing on clinical issues in child health nursing as well as leadership and management in health service delivery.
Recently child health nurses, supported by the Centre, completed a project entitled 'Factors that influence parents' decisions when determining whether their child is sick and what they do about it.' (Winskill, R., Keatinge, D., Hancock, S., Ratoni, T., Stevens, H. ). This research study was funded by the Edith Cavell Trust and the Centre for Education and Nursing Research in Child Health and has been published (Winskill, R., Keatinge, D. & Hancock, S. (2011). Influences on parents' decisions when determining whether their child is sick and what they do about it: A pilot study. International Journal of Nursing Practice, 17(2), pp. 126-132).
