Management

Our centre has two main committees, the Steering Committee chaired by the Senior Associate Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Prof. Terry Campbell, and an Advisory Committee chaired by Emeritus Professor Ian Webster.

We have four research streams and are members of two Centres of Research Excellence:

  • Primary Health Care Informatics

This stream studies the development of information systems needed to support high quality, integrated primary health care, and how these can be used to improve the quality of care.

  • Prevention and management of chronic disease research stream

This focuses on the contribution of primary health care to preventing and managing chronic disease, especially diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

  • Primary Health Care System Development research stream

This is concerned with the development of new types of primary health care service such as Medicare Locals, strengthening health care integration and improving continuity of care and access to primary health care.

  • Action for Equity

This stream focuses on the development and implementation of interventions that address health inequalities.
