CCRI partners with HMRI to launch Healthcare Transformation Research Program
In April, the Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) announced the creation of 19 new research programs focused on improving the health and wellbeing of our communities. Today, the Healthcare Transformation Research Program was launched with the purpose to develop and deliver workable, evidence-based solutions for real-world problems in the health system that improve care experiences and outcomes for individuals, families, communities and the health workforce.
This Program has been established through a partnership led by the Nursing and Midwifery Research Unit at Hunter New England LHD, the Health Services Research and Innovation Centre at the University of Newcastle, and the Central Coast Research Institute for Integrated Care. In keeping with CCRI’s mission, the strategic aim of the Program is to build a research enabling environment and implement transformative models of care that address real-world health problems. Underpinned by a transdisciplinary, translational and transformative approach its priority areas for action include older persons care, maternal and infant health, drug and alcohol, mental health, and pain management.
