Research, innovation and impact
Our research is dedicated to helping inform better health outcomes for individuals and populations locally, regionally and internationally.
We undertake impactful research in collaboration with the wider heath sector, government and industry. We aim to provide the best evidence to support significant health policies, practice and change.
We strive for research impact which is of direct relevance to the needs of today's health consumers, health practitioners, policy makers and health system designers – in both the public and private sectors.
Our School’s excellence in research is driven by a desire to help provide solutions to important heath challenges. Drawing upon our methodological expertise and our extensive experience of multidisciplinary partnerships we are committed to producing insights of direct relevance and benefit to a broad range of stakeholders in the field.

Our research centres
The School of Public Health research is largely conducted across three research centres:
The centre houses trans-disciplinary applied public health and population health researchers who are committed to social justice and improving the health and wellbeing of global populations particularly socioeconomically disadvantaged and under-served communities.
This world-leading public health research centre focuses upon critically investigating and analysing a broad range of consumption, practice and policy issues around, traditional, complementary and integrative health care in Australia and globally.
The centre undertakes research into health and social care systems and services, in areas including: consumer engagement, workforce and service planning, quality and safety of care, ageing and disability service provision, vulnerable groups (patients, communities and staff) and organisational development and design. The centre has close links with, and provides policy advice to, health and social service providers, industry and government.
