About the Institute for Evidence-Based Healthcare

Established in 2010 as the Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice (CREBP), we have now transitioned into the Institute for Evidence-Based Healthcare launching 19 June 2019.

This transition will give us  greater ability to provide research and services that will help people think about providing sustainable, evidence-based healthcare and how research can greater influence policy and practice. The transition will also help us to increase our impact partnerships and translational project opportunities in addition to the development of new educational programs.

Addressing big, neglected problems in healthcare.

The Institute will continue to deliver world-class research, engagement and training that will serve 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 will contribute to the health and healthcare of Australians and influence health policy, improve global health outcomes and continue to enhance Bond University as a leading private and independent University.

We aim to improve healthcare by better understanding the causes of, and solutions to, gaps between research evidence and its application in practice.

To achieve this we:

  • Undertake research that more closely aligns evidence and patient care,
  • Support and extend collaborations between clinicians and health researchers to achieve better value care,
  • Enable patients and families to make evidence-informed health decisions that are congruent with their values and preferences.
  • Lead and facilitate the teaching and learning of evidence-based practice,
  • Develop young researchers for research programs in sustainable health care.
