Perceived Research Culture and Capacity within the Metro South Hospital Health Service

Closed 19 Dec 2022

Opened 4 Oct 2022


A strong research culture is central to informing evidence-based practice and improving performance within healthcare services. Evidence identifies the need for multi-tiered research support, particularly at the team level, to reduce local barriers to clinician led research.

This research project aims to assess the perceived research culture and capacity across Metro South Hospital and Health Services, including PAH, Redland, QEII, Logan, Beaudesert and Community and Oral Health.  

All anonymous data will be stored securely.  Only the research team will have access to the data.  You do not need to provide an email address on the last page to submit your responses, this is only required if you would like to receive an automatic copy of your responses for your records.
