Who we are
The Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity (CPHCE) is a university research centre located within the Faculty of Medicine, University of NSW. We are closely associated with the School of Public Health and Community Medicine at the University of New South Wales, and have long term partnerships with health services, particularly in south western, south eastern and central Sydney.
What we do
We conduct research, evaluation and development that strengthen primary health care and address health inequities, with the aim of contributing to better, fairer health in the community. We address current issues in policy and practice, and work with health and related services to implement our findings. Our work is rigorous, collaborative and is based on more than fifteen years’ experience as a research group.
A recent symposium hosted by the Hospital Alliance for Research Collaboration (HARC) and CPHCE attracted wide interest from health profissionals to discuss the new model for delivering primary care.
Over 40 people from mainly local health districts and primary health networks attended a ½ day workshop on Monday 21 March at CPHCE. The workshop was on the use of linked data, with a focus on the 45 and Up study. The purpose of the workshop was to: a) feedback and to consider how the finding from 3 linked data studies undertaken by CPHCE (Primary and Community Health Cohort living in Central and Eastern Sydney Region) can be used to inform population health planning and integrated care health service development; and b) to share insights from participants on implications of results.
CHETRE, one of our Reseach Hub based in Liverpool, has been looking for a Deputy Director for a while and we can now confirm that Dr Ben Harris-Roxas is the successful candidate.
