Health services innovation

Children’s Health Queensland aims to rapidly translate research into better health outcomes across disciplines. Our work leverages data-driven methods and contemporary approaches such as health economics, biostatistics, evaluation techniques, and consumer and community involvement to promote innovation that improves health services. Key areas of investigation include healthcare evaluation and policy, training and capacity building, child and youth mental health, population health, and integrated care. This research shapes the delivery of health care across primary, secondary, tertiary, quaternary care and statewide services. It also informs the development of integrated and sustainable person-centred healthcare systems for Queensland children, young people and their families.
