Clinicians leading change in health care delivery
Head: A/Prof Michael ShanahanThe Academic unit brings together Flinders’ nationally recognised expertise in clinical trials, health economics, chronic disease self management, disability, speech pathology, audiology, paramedics and health service research.
Evidence is applied to the latest therapeutic advances in cardiology, musculoskeletal medicine, mental health, rehabilitation and aged care. It has a focus on informing the rapidly changing delivery of health care through actively engaging in both clinical practice, research and teaching.
These strengths are characterised by strong partnerships with affiliated health care institutions and industry, research outcomes of direct benefit to practice or with industry value and commercialisation outcomes, and a high level of participation in national mechanisms for peer review of research and development of research policy and practice.
