South Western Sydney PHN is committed to establishing partnerships and supporting local researchers and other relevant stakeholders in our region to conduct innovative, high quality, ethical primary care research.
Research (and evaluation) is vital in building the evidence base we need to commission new services and transform existing services to improve the health outcomes of people living in South Western Sydney.
Our research and evaluation activities have shifted towards a more targeted approach to allow us to maximise our involvement. These focus areas are informed by the priorities set out in our Strategic Plan and regular needs assessments. Research relating to these priority areas of focus will aid us in building our evidence base and addressing the health outcomes of South Western Sydney residents.
Our current areas of focus are:
- Digital health
- Change management
- Access to Medicare
