Molly Wardaguga Research Centre
The Molly Wardaguga Research Centre was a strategic investment by CDU in 2019. Established in honour of Burarra Elder and midwife who worked extensively to improve health outcomes, with a vision of returning birthing services to Indigenous communities and Indigenous control. The vision of the Centre is to support women’s cultural and birthing aspirations, especially in remote locations through research and use this to dismantle the barriers imposed by westernised approaches to birthing and maternal healthcare.

Mental Health and Supportive Care Research Group
The Mental Health and Supportive Care Research Group endeavours to better health and well-being outcomes through the development and implementation of evidence-based psychosocial interventions. Our researchers here, in the College of Nursing and Midwifery, and our adjunct national and international colleagues have worked with government, non-government and community-based health agencies to contribute to health and well-being-enhancing initiatives. In particular, we have expertise in clinical trials, community-based approaches, implementation science, and service evaluations. As our name suggests, our program of work is comprised of two core themes: mental health care and cancer supportive care. We also engage in undergraduate honours and postgraduate research supervision and research mentorship.
