High quality practise-based research and evaluation is fundamental to the work of UnitingCare. It forms our approach to providing services to improve the wellbeing of the people whose lives we touch every day of the year.
The research conducted through our organisation and research centres is critical in achieving our strategic goal to be a leader in person-centred care, as we develop new ways to reach out, speak out and care for Queensland communities.
UnitingCare Health invests in the future of health care through its commitment to research and education.
All medical research projects undertaken at UnitingCare Health facilities require prior approval from the UnitingCare Health Human Research and Ethics Committee (HREC).
We would like to acknowledge the generosity of the many funders, national and local research partners, participating clients and patients, and staff across the organisation that initiate, support and implement our research projects. These people make it possible to continue to improve the wellbeing of all who we serve.
