Addressing big, neglected problems in healthcare
Established in 2010 as the Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice (CREBP), we transformed into the Institute for Evidence-Based Healthcare in 2019. The transition from Centre to Institute enabled us to provide advisory services informing provision of sustainable, evidence-based healthcare, and to facilitate research informed policy and practice. The transition has enabled us to increase our impact, partnerships, translational project opportunities, and develop new educational programs.
Our research addresses four big, neglected problems in healthcare:
- antibiotic resistance,
- waste in medical research, and
- neglected non-pharmaceutical treatment.
Our focus in these areas assists health systems to provide care that is patient-centred and informed by evidence, and enables patients to make decisions that are congruent with their values, preferences and circumstances.
- To undertake research that more closely aligns evidence and patient care.
- To support and extend collaborations between clinicians and health researchers to achieve higher value care.
- To enable patients and families to make evidence-informed health decisions that are congruent with their values and preferences.
- To lead and facilitate the teaching and learning of evidence-based practice.
- To develop young researchers for research programs in sustainable healthcare.
