What is the Centre for Healthcare Knowledge & Innovation?
The Centre for Healthcare Knowledge & Innovation (the Centre) was established in June 2016 by the North Coast Primary Health Network (NCPHN), in collaboration with partner organisations. Its aim is to enhance knowledge and stimulate innovation in primary health care and social services on the North Coast and neighbouring regions.
Why has the Centre been established?
The Centre brings scholars and researchers to the North Coast to share their knowledge with the local health and social services workforce, and to engage with our region in projects, research, workshops and practice and site visits. It is intended that collaborations enabled by the Centre will fuel innovation and creativity and stimulate change and reform.
The Centre’s programs aim to:
- Advance care coordination and integration
- Improve patient experience and outcomes
- Increase value
- Upskill, and provide professional development for, clinicians and professionals.
