Your support can enable medical research that could change or save lives

You can help elevate patient care in the ACT through supporting world-class research for improved health and wellbeing

With the new Research Centre opening this year, Canberra Health Services wants to be able to do more research that can improve methods to provide more personalised care and better patient outcomes.

Clinician researchers within Canberra's healthcare community are involved in many different research projects including unravelling immune thrombocytopenia to look at better treatment options and improved quality of life, involvement in national IBIS Breast Cancer Trials, implementing patient reported outcomes measures so CHS medical professionals can better personalise cancer treatment options,  and researching to ensure people will have the knowledge necessary to make an informed choice about their end of life care options including Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) when this becomes available.

Priority areas for CAS research are studies which covers:

  • Prospective clinically focussed studies
  • Translational research, or research which highlights potential for translation and sustainability
  • Personalised medicine approaches
  • Supporting improved outcomes of care including quality of life
  • Integrating care or prevention for patients at the interface of hospital, primary, community and social care services
  • Reducing unwarranted clinical variation and promoting better-value healthcare

Make a difference

A health service that is driven by research and best practice can enhance people's health & wellbeing through an improved environment, better equipment, and facilities, and by supporting care teams to achieve ever higher standards of care.

The vision is to establish the ACT as a centre for world-class multidisciplinary research within a culture that embraces research to improve the health and wellbeing of patients, consumers and families. Excellence in teaching, training and research leads to exceptional health care.
