About the HSRAANZ

Founded in 2001, the Health Services Research Association of Australia & New Zealand (HSRAANZ) supports and promotes the conduct and dissemination of applied research to improve the delivery and organisation of health services in Australia and New Zealand. With a wide range of individual and corporate members from universities, research centres, government departments, independent government agencies, and consumer groups the Association bridges the gap between research and policy, as well as reflecting consumer issues. We also have two special interest groups, focussing on Emerging Researchers and Indigenous Health Services Research, both of which have a prominent role at our main conference. [read more]

    HSRAANZ Submission – Australian Medical Research and Innovation Five Year Strategy

    The HSRAANZ has made a submission to The Australian Medical Research Advisory Board’s (Advisory Board) call for views and ideas on its Strategy and Priorities, which are intended to ensure a coherent and consistent approach is adopted when disbursing MRFF funding into the health and medical research sector. The Association’s submission concentrate’s on the Australian Medical Research and Innovation Strategy (Strategy). The submission “A Research Strategy to Improve Health Services Research” defines two broad forms of HSR – local HSR and large scale HSR – and provides a rationale and some broad suggestions to improve the conduct and impact of both forms of HSR in Australia. It concludes that further work is required to develop and appraise specific actions, but an overarching component of the submission is the call for a National Centre for Health Services Research. The Centre will oversee both forms of HSR and provide the basis for developing the necessary infrastructure to ensure HSR reaches its potential to improve the health and wellbeing of all Australians. We would welcome comments on our approach.
