South West Health Research Collaborative

The Lishman Health Foundation, in partnership with Rural Health West, St John of God Bunbury, Edith Cowan University, WA Country Health Service and WA Primary Health Alliance, initiated the South West Health Research Collaborative in 2019. The key objectives of the SWHRC are:

  • Form a collaborative South West regional community of health professionals, researchers, universities and research organisations to optimise the opportunity for health research in the South West region.
  • Identify current health research and translational health research activity in the South West.
  • Determine future health research and translational health research priorities relevant to, health practice, health outcomes and health professional development in the South West.
  • Grow health research and translational health research activity in the South West.
  • Develop strategies for research implementation and translational research projects.
  • Identify resources to support research.
  • Facilitate the South West Health Research Collaborative in guiding and directing research projects in accordance with identified health research needs and priorities.

The SWHRC will host the South West Health Research Forum on the 26 November 2020, bringing together health professionals, researchers, universities and research organisations to guide and direct future research projects in accordance with identified health research needs and priorities.

The South West Health Research Collaborative will also host a series of webinars.
