Health Services and Policy research at the School of Public Health encompasses a multi-disciplinary field that aims to:

  • investigate the provision of health care services and their impact on consumer outcomes
  • improve the delivery of health care services
  • better understand the systems within which they are delivered.

Our research and translation activities aim to inform National and State health policy development. The Health Services and Policy researchers within the School of Public Health undertake academic and commissioned research, and utilise a variety of methodologies including quantitative, qualitative, geospatial, and health econometrics.
