Complex Healthcare Processes

Leading the way. Excellence in research

Research in this group aims to advance understanding of the ways that life-changing and life-limiting diseases impact on individuals and families, and to understand the ways that their experiences are shaped by complex healthcare processes. Our discovery research will contribute to improvements in care quality, safety, and effectiveness. From this foundation, we seek to design, build, implement and evaluate processes of care that improve patient and family experiences and healthcare outcomes in the community and in hospital, including identification of risk factors and effective preventive strategies.

Our three research themes focus on ageing and dementia (led by Jackie Bridges); cancer survivorship and end of life care (led by Claire Foster); and implementation research (led by Carl May). 

Ageing and Dementia Theme
