In this issue we share a new blog by Professor Don Nutbeam who has recently joined the Sax Institute as a Senior Adviser. He argues the UK experience has enabled universities and researchers to demonstrate the tangible benefits of national research investment. And he says it’s time for Australia to reconsider this approach, which it conceived – and abandoned – in the mid 2000s. We also share US expert Professor Kevin Grumbach’s presentation from a recent HARC-sponsored symposium on the Patient-Centred Medical Home.
