April 2016.

In this month’s Bulletin, we meet the four new recipients of the 2016 HARC scholarships, who will now have the opportunity to travel abroad to investigate areas ranging from ways to represent Aboriginal voices in health system design and delivery, to ensuring electronic health records keep patients safe.

In our research section, we look at the latest findings on the common problem of variations in care, including one study that shows patient management varies across Australia’s specialised burns units, and another that reveals half of patients at risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) do not receive appropriate preventive care in Australian hospitals.

In our profile, we meet Anita Dessaix, who has been instrumental in many of the Cancer Institute NSW’s influential cancer prevention campaigns.

Please forward this edition of the Bulletin to colleagues who might be interested in joining the HARC network and, as always, get in touch with your feedback or suggestions at communications@saxinstitute.org.au.

If your email address has changed, make sure you send us your new address so that we can update your subscription.
