Our location at Alfred Health provides valuable opportunities to understand important challenges for our health service, develop innovative solutions and test these in a real-world clinical setting.
We aim to generate high quality evidence to guide clinical practice and have a strong focus on conducting multi-site clinical trials of treatments that are critical to nursing and allied health practice.
Our research strengths include:
- Supportive Care for Chronic Lung Disease: Professor Anne Holland leads a research program that aims to optimise health and wellbeing for people with respiratory disease, with a focus on new models for pulmonary rehabilitation.
- Neurological Rehabilitation: Associate Professor Natasha Lannin’s research program is focused on neurological rehabilitation as a means to improve quality of life.
- Implementation Science – developing and testing innovative methods to increase uptake of best evidence into clinical care, with a particular focus on neurological and respiratory conditions
