The Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation (AusHSI) is a leading health services research centre, based at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) within the Faculty of Health. The Centre is working with our Targeted Translation Research Accelerator Program providing support and mentoring to TTRA applicants and awardees with standalone behavioural interventions focused on diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Operations Director Megan Campbell joins the podcast to discuss how AusHSI’s research and implementation science is improving health services and patient outcomes. Megan gives an update on ‘Cardiac Month’ held in August highlighting how AusHSI’s Cardiac Health Services is addressing the burden of CVD.
