Message from the Director
Barwon Health has a thriving culture of curiosity, innovation and evidence-based practice. We are passionate about the integration of clinical care and research, in collaboration with our community, to solve important problems.
Each of our clinical departments has an established and productive research program. Together we work across the life course, from pregnancy to aged care, to create and translate new knowledge.
Our partnership with Deakin University is crucial. It enables us to assemble interdisciplinary teams with skills in nursing, allied health, medicine, health services, laboratory sciences, biostatistics, computer sciences, public health, policy and beyond.
Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our community, we are in the process of establishing the Adrian Costa Clinical Trials Centre. This initiative is vital to our goal of embedding research excellence into every aspect of clinical care. A world-class Clinical Trials program ensures access to cutting edge treatments.
The coming decade will see us build on a strong history of community participation. We need everyone’s help to identify the most important research questions, to then answer them, and ultimately to translate our new knowledge into better outcomes. We’d love everyone to be a part of the journey.
