Health services and health systems research will be critical to developing an enduring and resilient system. This Initiative aims to strengthen the evidence base to assist in future-proofing our health care and aged care systems.
This work will include identification and promotion of:
- Powerful examples of how health services research has informed decisions about sustainable health care
- Opportunities for health services research and health system research to contribute further to future proofing our health care system
- Strategies to deliver on these opportunities.
The first event planned as part of this project was held on 29 August 2022. More than 80 people from Sax Institute’s member organisations attended. The event was chaired by Sax Institute CEO Professor Sally Redman AO, with Professor Brodaty, Professor Green, Professor Hall and Professor Morton on the panel.
