Health Sciences Group-Primary Care present 'Driving service improvement through research – an example from the Australian Aboriginal primary health care service sector'
Speaker: Professor Ross Bailie
Further details: Aboriginal people experience the poorest health of any ethnic group in Australia, with evidence of policy and health systems failures at multiple levels contributing to poor social and health outcomes. This presentation will describe an initiative that aims to improve health services and systems through the establishment of a national research partnership to support and drive system wide continuous quality improvement processes. The development of the national research partnership has drawn on local experience and on principles from community based participatory action research, continuous quality improvement, diffusion of innovation, large scale change, practice based research networks and partnership theory. The presentation will aim to stimulate discussion and suggestions for how this type of initiative can be strengthened, drawing on experience and ideas from the audience.
Professor Ross Bailie is the Scientific Director for the Centre for Primary Health Care Systems at Menzies School of Health Research and a Senior Advisor for the Lowitja Institute.
