Critical Care Research in Collaboration & Evidence Translation (CCRICET)

The Critical Care Research in Collaboration & Evidence Translation (CCRiCeT) group is an initiative of the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Western Sydney University (WSU) and the Centre for Applied Nursing Research (CANR). CCRiCeT works to bring clinicians and academics together to support one another to undertake or integrate research to improve patient care in key clinical areas of Emergency, Intensive Care, Coronary care and Vascular Access. A central strategy of CCRiCeT is to facilitate collaboration between clinicians, academics, and patients to deliver high impact evidence to the clinical area, reviewing the international evidence for best practice and undertake research in areas of need. Research, collaboration and evidence translation aims to improve patient outcomes, incorporating a patient centred approach will ensure that the research projects are driven to meet the needs of the people we care for.
