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.
The Institute delivers world-class research, engagement and training that serves as a national and international resource for scholars, clinicians, system leaders, patients and families in the implementation of evidence-based clinical care. The effective integration of research into practice contributes to the health and healthcare of Australians, influences health policy, improves global health outcomes, and enhances Bond University as a leading private and independent University.
Our research addresses four big, neglected problems in healthcare: antibiotic resistance, overdiagnosis, 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.
