Doreen McCarthy Nursing Research Grant

Doreen McCarthy Nursing Research Grant

The Doreen McCarthy Nursing Research Grant (DMNRG) is a collaborative initiative between RPH Research Foundation and the Royal Perth Hospital Nursing Research Foundation.

It was created in honour of Professor Doreen McCarthy, former Director of Nursing at Royal Perth Hospital, who was a champion for nursing research and instigated many initiatives aimed at promoting nurses as researchers and research into nursing practice. Doreen went on to be the founding Dean of Nursing at The University of Notre Dame Australia's School of Nursing & Midwifery in Fremantle.

This grant is a seed-funding scheme, providing preliminary funding for innovative research projects aligned with RPH Research Foundation's objective to enable Early Career Researchers to establish a research track record.

In 2023 there was a total of $20,000 awarded to the successful applicant. Read more about the 2023 project here. 

Applications closed on Thursday 6 April 2023 and the 2023 Doreen McCarthy Nursing Research Grant has been awarded.
