Health & Wellbeing
The Health & Wellbeing research group at Southern Cross University focuses upon the knowledge and evidence associated with the laws of health and well-being. The research team explore how health is improved and maintained, through a series of health research measures based upon patient care activities and then managed into curriculum development.
The overall mission of the School is to facilitate the nexus between research, education and practice thereby ensuring good patient care and practitioner competence and capability. The primary activity of the Research Cluster for Health and Wellbeing is to conduct the research using a variety of methodologies, qualitative and quantitative, focusing around programmatic areas that build on current research strengths and engage multi-disciplinary teams.
The Health and Wellbeing research group places an emphasis on clinical, health service, health policy, health promotion and disease prevention research, as well as research which addresses the structural and systemic factors that impact on health and well-being in a broader sense. The research seeks to answer questions about what works and does not work in health and to improve understanding of both the clinical and cost effectiveness of new technologies as well as current practices. Issues of particular relevance in rural/regional areas, and issues affecting indigenous people also feature strongly in the work of the group.
