Northern Area Local Health Network Clinical Research
We are interested in clinical research that is likely to make a positive impact on local community services across a broad range of health issues.
High quality clinical research and the rapid translation of robust research findings into clinical practice are the key to driving improvements in patient outcomes and public health. We are keen to facilitate and foster novel and innovative ideas that are practical, feasible and likely to lead to improved patient outcomes and wellbeing.
Our clinical research program covers a range of health issues, including:
- infectious diseases
- sexual health
- cardiovascular disease
- respiratory disease
- mental health
The Northern Area Local Health Network (NALHN) is made up of the Lyell McEwin Hospital, Modbury Hospital, GP Plus Health Care Centres and Super Clinics, and sub-acute and mental health services. Our research group aims to combine academic rigour with a commitment to the highest quality service delivery to the NAHLN and the relatively marginalised and disadvantaged community it helps.
