Research impact

CQUniversity's applied research focus emphasises the translation and uptake of research findings to meet external stakeholder needs – the focus is not merely on increasing academic publications and citation rates. Several aspects of our research are oriented towards real-world outcomes including: provision of high quality outcomes through translation and application of current research findings (Mental Health Nursing, Family and Domestic Violence; Population Health; Education Practice); influencing government policy and regulatory frameworks (Fatigue Management in Fly-in/Fly-out and Drive-in/Drive-out long distance commuters; Marine Biosecurity frameworks); and developing greater understanding of social issues of the day and contributing to decision-making through salient advice (Economic considerations of conflict between agrarian and resource extraction uses).
