Allied Health Research

Allied Health professionals work as part of multi-disciplinary teams to provide patient care for thousands of people with cancer each year

Our research is enhancing the quality clinical management of patients using the best and most up-to-date evidence to optimise cancer care and improve outcomes for our patients.  

Over the next five years, we aim to:

  • Leverage Allied Health data and technology to advance patient care
  • Expand and support research opportunities
  • Build staff research capacity and capability
  • Influence wider health service policy
